Getting started The application process

Step 1

Check your eligibility

  1. Your business has a valid Australian Business Number (ABN).
  2. Your business is registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST).
  3. You intend to use the product mostly for business purposes.

Step 2

Enquire online

Use our easy online enquiry form and a NAB business banker will return your call to discuss which options are most suitable. We may need to request further information to enable us to assess your enquiry.

Step 3

Sign documents and collect your purchase

Once you’ve provided us with the final invoice, we’ll email you the paperwork to sign. When we receive all the documents back and your vehicle or equipment is ready to be collected, we’ll pay the supplier.

Already purchased the vehicle or equipment?

If you’ve already purchased the vehicle or equipment, we can still set up a loan and reimburse you for the cost.

What is a balloon payment?

A balloon payment is a lump sum repayment at the end of the loan term, after all regular monthly repayments have been made. When your loan has a balloon payment your monthly loan repayment will be lower, and you’ll pay more interest over the term of your loan. Alternatively, without a balloon repayment your repayments will be higher, you’ll pay less interest, and you will have no lump sum to pay at the end of the term.

When can I pick up my car or equipment from the supplier? 

You can collect the vehicle or equipment once all the signed documents are received, all outstanding requirements have been met and we’ve paid the supplier.

Other options to consider
