Chattel Mortgage


Perfect for business-use new car buyers who want to maximise the taxation benefits of financing a new vehicle.

What is a Chattel Mortgage?

Under a Chattel Mortgage the financier provides the funds to the customer to buy the vehicle and the customer makes regular repayments. To fulfil terms of the agreement the car must be used at least 50% for business purposes. At the time of purchase the customer becomes the legal owner of the vehicle and the financier takes out a “mortgage” to secure the investment. Once the loan is paid off the customer has no further commitments to the financer. Note: the vehicle cannot be sold until the loan and any residual amount owing (balloon) is paid in full. This can be part of a trade in process.

Who is Chattel Mortgage suitable for?

A Chattel Mortgage, also known as Asset Purchase or Goods Loan, is suitable for a range of customers including sole traders, partnerships and companies. Chattel mortgages are especially attractive to businesses registered for GST, given the taxation benefits. They also work for businesses who use the cash method of accounting as they can claim GST in the vehicle’s price upfront.

Benefits of a Chattel Mortgage

What’s the difference between financing your car through a dealer vs’ a bank?


The general process of approval is similar for both. All lenders in Australia are regulated by the same agencies and are subject to the same legislation. The difference with using a dealer is you can complete everything onsite and drive away in your new car sooner. Banks often require a meeting or a number of appointments to arrange a loan so the process can take longer. Banks present you with their own loan products only. Whereas dealers can often offer a wide range of options from a number of different lenders, giving you more choice. With a dealer, the financing facility is part of the holistic offering, so they don’t have the overheads of providing a “bricks and mortar” office like a bank does. This means they can pass on the savings to you via competitive lending products.
