Jade Equipment Finance provides a comprehensive range of commercial loan products for business equipment purchases:-

  • Equipment Lease
  • Chattel Mortgage
  • Equipment Rental
  • Commercial Hire Purchase

Each products offers a range of benefits but all include:-

The key differences are:

  • How GST is treated
  • Off or on balance sheet asset/liability
  • Ownership of the asset over the time of the loan
  • Ownership of the equipment at conclusion of the loan
  • Tax deductible amounts
  • Asset depreciation

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 seek advice specific to your business from your accountant.

Equipment Lease

  • Fixed interest rate for the full term of the asset lease.
  • Fixed loan term.

  • Monthly lease payments and residual payments are tax deductible, as determined by the Australian Taxation Office. 
  • Fixed residual  amount, payable at the completion of the asset lease term.
  • GST on the full purchase price is claimed by lender.
  • As the lender can claim back the GST, the amount financed in the lease is the equipment purchase price ex GST.
  • GST is charged on the monthly lease payments and residual (when paid) is claimed by the borrower.
  • The monthly lease payment appears on your (the borrower) balance sheet as an operating expenditure rather than having the full price of the equipment as an asset/liability.

Chattel Mortgage
