There are multiple types of loans to consider when purchasing a commercial vehicle. The most common type of commercial car loan is a chattel mortgage. A chattel mortgage allows you to borrow funds to purchase a vehicle that you take ownership of. You may also choose to lease a vehicle through a finance lease, where you make payments to use the vehicle, but ownership of the vehicle is retained by the leasing agency. Another option to consider is a hire purchase, where the lender retains ownership of the vehicle while the borrower makes payments on the vehicle. When the final payment of the hire purchase is completed, ownership of the vehicle is transferred to the borrower.
If you’re looking for a vehicle for an employee, a novated lease is also applicable. A novated lease is a contract between an employee, the employee, and the lending agency, where the employee takes responsibility for the contract, yet the employer makes the payments on the vehicle.
