What does commercial hire purchase include

CHP may include large fishing operators, small fishing businesses, marine salvage and repair operators, ferry operators, charter vessels owners, boat and houseboat rental businesses, jet ski hire businesses, water taxi operators, tugboat operators, cruise operators and many other marine business operations.

CHP is suitable for the purchase of many types of boats, for a single vessel acquisition, expanding a fleet with a multi-vessel purchase or refinancing existing boat loans.

Deciding if CHP is the most suitable option for your boat acquisition depends on your business structure and you are advised to consult with your accountant on this matter. The decision will be determined by how your business treats GST, asset depreciation, tax deductions and other factors.

Understanding the Key Aspects of Commercial Boat Hire Purchase

What does commercial hire purchase involve

In general terms, CHP involves the lender purchasing the boat on behalf of the borrower and essentially ‘hiring’ the vessel back to the borrower at the monthly loan repayment/hire amount.

The lending company holds ownership over the boat for the term of the hire purchase (loan) agreement. The borrower retains use of the boat throughout the loan term and is responsible for the maintenance and operating expenses of the vessel during that time.

Whether you are purchasing a new boat from a dealer, manufacturer or importer or a used boat from a dealer, private seller, auction or online, your Jade consultant can arrange a CHP to suit your business.
