What is a Low Doc Business Loan?

This type of loan enables business owners and the self-employed to access needed cash flow without the need for up-to-date tax returns. This is a great option when business owners do not have the required standard documentation for traditional options or simply don’t want to divulge their full financials to an outside party.

The main requirement for a Low Doc Business Loan is that you have a valid Australian ABN that is GST registered. Along with this, you will also require:

  • Confirmable credit – that is a history of a previously paid loan.

  • Affordability – the ability to make the monthly loan repayments for the duration of the loan.

Benefits of Business Vehicle Finance

Applying for any type of financial aid can come with uncertainties; however, when applying for this finance type for a vehicle or equipment, there are specific advantages that make it the right choice as a business owner.

1. Access to reliable vehicle or equipment

There is much value to be had by being reliable and gaining clients' trust. Reaching clients on time means gaining a good reputation and saves you both time and money.

2. Tax benefits

One of the positive aspects is that you can claim tax deductions and GST benefits as long as you're an ABN holder. This includes being able to claim an immediate deduction for business vehicles and equipment purchases through the ATO Temporary full expensing.

3. Fixed monthly repayments

Payments are simple; these are made monthly via direct debit. This means you can focus on growing your company while your payments are automatically doing their job.

4. Freeing Cash Flow

With the flexibility on terms of your loan, you can make smaller payments over 7 years to free up the remainder of your cash to put into your profession. Prefer a quicker plan? Making your monthly plans higher over fewer years is an option too.  Our balloon payment option also allows you to reduce the monthly repayments and have a lump sum payment due at the end of the loan term. Many business owners simply sell the vehicle at the end of the term, use the proceeds to pay out the loan and then update to a new car!
