There are a few different things you need to consider when seeking finance for your car or equipment finance.

Are you a sole trader, a company or are you involved in a partnership? 

You may need to discuss with your accountant how your accounts are managed.  If you use cash accounting, there are 2 finance options you may consider.  These options include using a Finance Lease, or a Chattel Mortgage

An alternative to cash accounting is accrual based accounting.  If this is how you run your books, then your should consider a Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP) 

If you are an individual, you need to determine whether the car finance you are looking for will relate to a personal or a business use vehicle.

If your employer offers a car allowance as part of your salary, then there are 2 main types of finance for you to consider.  A Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP) and a Finance Lease are generally considered the best options if you are using a car for business purposes.

If your employer offers salary packaging, whereby you can use some pre-tax income to purchase a car, then you should consider a Novated Lease / Finance Lease.

If you are simply looking for a car and are not able to access salary packaging, then a Consumer Loan / Car loan  should be on your shopping list.
