Finance lease: Vehicle and equipment fact sheet

Understanding a finance lease.

  • Additional fees may apply if you:

    • already own the vehicle or equipment
    • are buying the vehicle or equipment from a person or business that:
      • doesn't have an ABN
      • isn't registered for GST
      • doesn't generally sell this type of equipment as part of their normal course of business.
    • are purchasing specialised equipment
    • want to make a change to the loan after it has been drawn down.

    Find full details in our Business Banking Fees and Charges guide.

  • At the end of the lease term:

    • you must return the goods to NAB
    • you can make an offer to purchase the goods
    • you can make an offer to lease the goods for a further term.
  • We own the vehicle or equipment, however you are able to make an offer to buy it from us at the end of the lease agreement.

  • You have the freedom to choose new or used vehicle, from a dealer or a private seller (as long as they have an ABN and are registered for GST).

    If you want to make several vehicle or equipment purchases annually, we can set you up with a limit to save you reapplying. Contact a NAB Equipment Finance Specialist to find out more.

  • We offer a range of flexible repayment structures including monthly, quarterly, seasonal or repayments that are tailored to your business.

  • Some customers may be able to claim input tax credits for GST included in the price of the vehicle or equipment, interest and related fees.

    We recommend that you seek independent tax advice.

  • If you make multiple vehicle or equipment purchases throughout the year, we can set you up with a limit to save you from reapplying. Contact us to learn more.

  • If you’ve already paid for the vehicle or equipment, it’s not too late – we may be able to buy it from you, reimburse the cost, and lease it back to you.

  • Unfortunately not. We need to pay for 100% of the vehicle’s cost and cannot accept a deposit or proceeds of a trade in.
