Equipment Finance Solutions
Whether you are leasing or hiring equipment for your business, there are a wide range of equipment finance solutions to choose from. To ensure maximum commercial benefit from your equipment finance, it's important to select an option that considers your business structure, tax and cash flow. Renting or leasing equipment is an effective strategy for freeing up capital and providing your business with the assets it needs to grow without the expense of purchasing.
If capital expenditure is not an advantage to your business and equipment needs to be periodically updated, an Operating or Finance Lease may be a wise choice.
However, if you want to ultimately own the equipment that you are hiring, a Commercial Hire Purchase or a Chattel Mortgage may be your best options.
Here is a basic overview of the equipment finance solutions you can choose from.
This is an agreement to rent equipment for a fixed period. At the end of the term you hand the equipment back in the agreed return condition with no further obligations.

Commercial Hire Purchase

This is a business loans Australia agreement which sees you take ownership of the equipment at the time of purchase and the financier uses the goods as security until the last payment is made.
