The key differences are:

  • How GST is treated

  • Tax deductible amounts
  • Asset depreciation

Choosing the Right Equipment Loan

The decision as to which loan product is best suited to your equipment purchase is not determined by what you are purchasing as all products are available for all types of business equipment acquisitions.

The deciding factors are based primarily on your accounting methods, treatment of GST, tax deductions, asset depreciation and balance sheet plan.

Your Jade Equipment Finance consultant is available to discuss the differences between loan products but we advise you to seek advice specific to your business from your accountant.
