Commercial Hire Purchase

A Commercial Hire Purchase is a legal obligation between the finance provider and the hirer (the client) where the amount repayable is calculated on a fixed term and fixed rate with the option of a balloon payment. The Hire Purchase provides for the transfer of the property/product to the hirer at the end of the hire term.

The basic premise is that the full term must run otherwise penalties may be incurred. When you wish to own the asset from the outset, this type of purchasing finance is an alternative to leasing. A typical Commercial Hire Purchase structure has a term of 2-5 years (24 to 60 Months) with payments made monthly although other options are available.

You have a choice of a balloon payment depending on usage and depreciation of goods. With a Commercial Hire Purchase, the GST can be financed over the term or paid up front.

 

This facility is ideal when financing Motor Vehicles, Medical Equipment, Luxury Boats and Office Equipment.

Commercial Loan ~ Chattel Mortgage

A Commercial Loan Agreement is where a first registered Bill of Sale ~ Chattel Mortgage is granted by the borrower in favour of the lender. This facility is ideal for clients who operate their accounts on a cash basis and wish to claim the GST up front as input tax credit. Commercial Loan necessitates the transfer of ownership at the outset and is better viewed as a secured loan.

 

This facility can be structured similarly to a Commercial Hire Purchase facility. The term is usually 2-5 years (24 to 60 Months) and a balloon amount can be structured into the loan depending on usage and depreciation of goods.

 

This facility is ideal when financing motor vehicles.

Novated Lease

An employee leases a motor vehicle from the lender using a standard finance agreement. A Deed of Novation is then entered into between the employee, the employer and the lender, also known as a Tri-party Agreement under which the employee’s obligation to pay the lease rental under the finance lease is transferred to the employer for the term of the Deed of Novation. Therefore, the employer pays the lease rental to the lender. The amount of the lease payment will be deducted from the employee’s pre-tax salary as part of the employee’s salary package.

If the employee leaves the employers employment for whatever reason, the Deed of Novation terminates immediately and the employer no longer has an obligation to pay the lease rental. The obligation to pay the lease rental under the finance lease reverts to the employee. The employee retains use of the vehicle as lessee until the finance lease expires.

 

Upon ceasing employment with the employer, an employee has the following options in relation to the motor vehicle:

 

Continued standard lease payments to the lender, or

  • The employee may be able to transfer the novated lease to a new employer.
  • Once the Deed of Novation has been entered into, the employer is the lessee of the motor vehicle and provides it to the employee as a salary package benefit.
  • The novated motor vehicle lease gives the employee the flexibility and choice normally enjoyed by a vehicle lessee under a standard lease. The vehicle is registered and insured in the employee’s name and the employee will pay the running costs associated with the vehicle from their salary package on a tax-exempt basis.
  • Payment of the residual value is the responsibility of the employee.

FAQ

What Is The Personal Property Security Register (PPSR)?

PPSR came into effect on the 30 January 2012,  Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR). It covers the situation where a lender takes a security interest in personal property as security for a loan and registers that security interest over the asset.

The lender will hold a security interest over the asset while loan term is being paid off. if you default on the loan facility a lender may repossess the asset to recover the outstanding debt.

When you are purchasing any type of personal property or commercial assets it would be an idea to search the PPSR registry. If a lender has a registered security interest over an asset, the lender has the first interest for the asset and may request payment in full.

 

Who Managers The PPSR Register?
