Do you know we can fund energy assets?

More and more finance companies are offering commercial finance for energy assets, solar panels (including installations costs) and energy efficient lighting, power correction units, battery storage and gas engines to name a few.

They can be financed on a chattel mortgage or a rental product and each product has their own benefits :-

Chattel mortgage- to own the goods

•   Your business owns the asset immediately and makes fixed monthly repayment to pay off the loan

•   At the end of the term after the final payment, clear title to the asset is transferred to your business

•   Interest and depreciation may be deductible for income tax purposes

•   If your business is registered for GST you may be entitled to claim input tax credits upfront on the      price of the asset.

•   Term can be from 36 months to 84 months

Rental

•   Finance Company owns the assets and you rent it from them for an agreed term

•   At the end of the term you can choose whether to continue renting, return the goods, or make an          offer to purchase at an agreed price

•   Tax advantage via Rent payments being 100% deductible subject to 100% commercial use v’s cash         purchase depreciation only (Solar PV Systems are a 20 year write off)

•   Cash Flow improved avoiding large upfront costs

•   Repayments are fixed for the term

•   Some soft costs can be bundled in to Rental finance

•   Term can be from 36 months to 84 months

 

Happy to discuss either option with you.

Some installation under $35,000 will not require financials but this is not always the case.

A quick call to us and we will be able to let you know.
