Benefits of a Chattel Mortgages for Businesses

A chattel mortgage allows businesses the flexibility of setting the loan term and residual values. Businesses may also claim back the GST contained in the vehicles purchase price as an Input Credit on their next BAS rather than over the course of the loan. Businesses may also claim tax deductions for the depreciation of the vehicle over its' lifetime and the interest charged on the loan for the term of the contract.

Chattel Mortgage VS Hire Purchase

As of July 1st 2012 there were changes to the commercial hire purchase tax rules. Currently a Commercial Hire Purchase is fully taxable, meaning that GST on fees and interest are payable. This amount is payable on settlement of the agreement and can be paid upfront or added to the value of the loan. For some businesses this is not a desirable situation as it increases the monthly payment for a commercial hire purchase agreement and the total GST payable.

Chattel mortgages on the other hand have remained unchanged in regards to GST payable, so monthly payments of a Chattel mortgage will essentially be cheaper than commercial hire purchase agreement and GST payable on the purchase price of the vehicle will be claimable when the businesses lodges their next BAS.
