Nixon Finance can arrange finance for cars, boats, motorbikes, jet skis and other registrable items. The most common form of financing is through a secured loan. The asset purchased is used by the lender as security for the loan often allowing a lower interest rate in return. Secured loans (consumer mortgages) are designed for people purchasing for private use. Nixon Finance can arrange finance for consumer car loans and commercial car loans. Our products include:
- Chattel mortgage
- Hire purchase
- Novated lease
- Consumer car loans
Leasing, hire purchase and chattel mortgage loans are available for vehicles used for at least 50% business needs. At Nixon Finance we make sure the client application meets all lending criteria to provide the best chance of securing approval.
Commercial hire purchase agreements are typically used by individual business customers who wish to place a deposit into their finance contract or nominate the value of the balloon (final instalment) on their contract. This type of contract offers maximum flexibility to set the monthly repayment amount to suit individual circumstances.
Chattel mortgage is an ideal way for individual business customers to maximise the taxation benefits gained from financing a new vehicle. It is designed for those sole traders and partnerships who account for their business operations on a cash basis and can be used for purchasing a new vehicle or upgrading an existing vehicle.
A novated lease is a three way agreement between the employer, employee and the lender.
The employer, employee and financier sign a novation agreement whereby the employer agrees to take on the employee’s obligations under the lease. Under this arrangement, the employer makes the monthly lease payments on behalf of the employee. Should the employee leave his or her employment for any reason, the novation agreement ceases and the obligations assumed by the employer revert to the employee as the registration is in the employee’s name.
A car loan is suitable when the vehicle is used wholly or predominantly for private purposes. This means that the vehicle is used privately for more than 50% of the time. The motor vehicle is the only security needed, although in some circumstances a guarantee may also be required.
The loan term and balloon payment can be tailored to suit individual circumstances.
