Low Doc Equipment Loans

Low Doc Equipment Loans And No Doc Equipment Loans

What is a low doc equipment loan?

A low doc equipment loan is a type of equipment loan that doesn’t require the stringent paper usually required from “full doc” bank equipment loans. This makes it a loan type that is accessible for a range of people ordinarily barred from bank loans, including sole traders with PAYG statements, people with adverse credit history and a range of other extenuating factors.

What do you need to apply for a low doc equipment loan?

When you’re applying for a low doc equipment loan, machinery finance or commercial equipment financing through Hodgestone Finance, we only ask for:

  1. a current ABN
  2. Business activity statement
  3. Accountant’s statement

What is a no doc equipment loan?

In this day and age, the term “no doc” equipment loan can be a bit of a misnomer. A more accurate term would be a “non-conforming equipment loan”, which is a type of commercial equipment financing that is still open to people with no assets, poor credit history and little documentation of things like PAYG income proof.

Best Equipment Loans

Best Equipment Loans And Equipment Finance

How do you find the best equipment loan?

A key tip for finding the best equipment loan is having a very clear – and written out – idea of what equipment you’re purchasing, what you’re using it for and the expected profit from using it that you can use to make repayments.

From there, a quick chat with a financial consultant can help demystify the process and point you in the right direction for your particular situation (depending on variables like your assets, credit history, etc).

What are things to keep in mind when getting an equipment loan?

Some key things to keep in mind when you’re getting an equipment loan are:

  1. Do you have assets you can use as security for a secured loan?
  2. Do you have PAYG income proof or will you need to apply for a low doc loan as a sole trader?
  3. What is the realistic timeframe that you’ll be able to repay your loan in?

Where does Hodgestone Finance provide its’ services to?
