Business Vehicle Loan

Toyota Finance offers an extensive range of business vehicle finance from finance-only solutions such as Chattel Mortgages and finance leases to complete finance and maintenance packages such as Complete Lease. Select the one that suits your business needs.

A Business Vehicle Loan is a flexible commercial loan designed for sole traders, partnerships and companies that are looking to finance a vehicle used primarily for business purposes. Yours business owns the vehicle and we take a mortgage over it, so it remains an asset of your business.

  • A choice of loan terms ranging from 1 - 5 years
  • Financing for vehicles up to 7 years old
  • Finance for both Toyota and non-Toyota vehicles
  • The security of a fixed interest rate for the term of the loan
  • A choice of flexible payment options

  • No GST on monthly payments
  • The ability for GST registered customers to claim part or full Input Tax Credit (ITC) for any GST on the purchase of the vehicle for use in your business.

Minimum term of 12 months.  Vehicle used predominantly for business.

Finance Lease

Finance leases are a popular solution for businesses because they enable you to secure the vehicle of your choice today without a deposit, allowing you to retain your capital for other purposes.

Finance leases provide:

  • An attractive and affordable means of driving a new car every few years
  • A choice of lease terms ranging from 1 - 5 years
  • Fixed payments for the term of the lease
  • No fixed kilometre limits

At the end of your lease period there are a number of options available to you. For example, you may be able to extend the lease for a further agreed term, trade the vehicle in on a new vehicle or make an offer to purchase the vehicle from us.

Term Purchase

The Term Purchase finance option is suitable for businesses who want the security of vehicle ownership after the final payment is made.

Term Purchases provide:

  • A fixed interest rate for the term of the loan
  • A choice of contract terms ranging from 1 - 5 years
  • A balloon payment option - subject to capacity guidelines
  • The ability for GST registered customers to claim part or full Income Tax Credit (ITC) for any GST on the purchase of the vehicle for use in your business
  • The potential to offset depreciation, interest charges and vehicle running costs against assessable income where the vehicle is used in your business.

Novated Lease

A novated lease is similar to a finance lease and is a popular salary packaging tool. It provides employees with the opportunity to include a motor vehicle of their choice as part of their salary package A novated lease is a three way agreement. The employee, as lessee and the employer enter into a novated lease agreement with Toyota Fleet Management as the lessor.

All of the lessee's obligations to pay vehicle lease rentals are transferred ("novated") to the employer. The employer then makes such payments to Toyota Fleet Management on behalf of the employee for the term of the novation - or until employment ceases, should it occur during the lease term. Employees can choose their own vehicle, and have their employer pay the vehicle lease rental from their gross salary, potentially giving them a higher disposable income.

Toyota Fleet Management can also administer post tax employee contributions to minimise fringe benefit tax liability.

Employee benefits:

  • Greater flexibility with the choice of a vehicle.
  • Financing for the vehicle is paid with pre-tax dollars.
  • Employee can make an offer to purchase the vehicle at the end of the novated lease term.
  • Fixed payments for the term of the lease.
  • A choice of lease terms from 1 - 5 years.
  • The vehicle may be leased for 100% private use.
  • More than one vehicle may be leased with employer's consent.

Employer benefits:

  • Removes liability and asset from balance sheet.
  • Reduces administration - one invoice for all novated vehicles.
  • An easy and cost-effective way to add value to an employee's remuneration package.
  • The vehicle stays with the employee, even if they move to a new job.
  • Employer does not have to worry about vehicle sale or disposal at the end of term.
  • Reduces payroll tax and Work Cover expenses (subject to State laws).
