What is a Chattel Mortgage?
A Chattel Mortgage is a commercial car finance product. The finance company lends money to the customer to purchase a car (Chattel) in return for the customer to make regular repayments. Once the customer has taken ownership of the car, the finance company then take’s a mortgage over the car as security for the loan.
Once the term of the loan has finished and any balloon (residual) amount is paid out the finance company removes the mortgage over the car giving the customer clear title over the car. The customer also has other options which include refinancing the balloon value or trading in the car and purchasing a new car.
Who is suited to a Chattel Mortgage?
Both Individuals and Business’s (including companies, trusts, partnerships) are eligible for a Chattel Mortgage as long as the car is predominately used for business purposes (income producing).
In general a Chattel Mortgage is best suited to a business that is registered for GST as the business may be able to claim the full GST component of the purchase price in their next BAS.
