Commercial Hire Purchase

What is Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP)?

CHP is a financing option that allows businesses to acquire essential equipment or vehicles by spreading the cost over a fixed term through regular installments.

Ownership vs Leasing: Unlike a lease, where ownership remains with the lender, CHP typically transfers ownership of the asset to your business upon completion of all repayments.

Key Features of CHP:

  • Finance up to 100% of the asset's value: This includes GST, allowing you to acquire the equipment you need without a significant upfront investment.

  • Fixed interest rates: Predictable budgeting with fixed interest rates throughout the loan term.

  • Flexible repayment structures: Choose repayment options that fit your cash flow, including balloon payments (larger final payment).

  • Immediate asset use: Start using the equipment or vehicle for your business operations while making repayments.

Benefits of Commercial Hire Purchase

CHP offers several advantages for Australian businesses:

  • Preserves working capital: Free up valuable capital for other business needs like marketing or inventory.

  • Potential tax benefits: Consult a tax advisor to explore potential tax deductions on interest payments and depreciation of the financed asset.

  • Improved operational efficiency: Gain access to essential equipment to enhance productivity and growth.

  • Flexible repayments: Tailor your repayment plan to align with your business's cash flow cycles.​

CHP is a suitable financing option for businesses in various situations:

  • Acquiring new equipment or vehicles: Finance essential assets for your core operations or expand your service offerings.

  • Replacing outdated or malfunctioning assets: Upgrade your equipment to maintain efficiency and avoid costly disruptions.
