About Commercial Hire Purchases

A commercial hire purchase (CHP) is a particular type of finance used by businesses for the purpose of purchasing a new or used vehicle or other business equipment.

Hire Purchase is a similar agreement to that of a Chattel Mortgage, only in that the lender holds title of the security until all monies owing are paid. With Hire Purchase, however for tax purposes you can claim depreciation, running costs and interest paid, against your business income. You may also be able to claim the GST component of your purchase in your next B.A.S Statement depending on how you remit your GST (cash or accrual) always seek advice from your accountant in regard to this.

You also have the option of including an upfront deposit or trade-in to reduce your rental commitment, while a balloon payment may also be set at the end of the term (much like a lease residual) to acknowledge the vehicles end value. Alternatively, you may choose to structure your rentals to clear the debt in full over the term of your agreement (fully amortised).
