Tax Benefits to Finance a Vehicle

If you own a business and need to purchase a vehicle, but can’t dip into your cash flow, then vehicle finance may be best for you. By financing your vehicle you can make simple repayments and still get the tax benefits for driving vehicle for business purposes.

Depreciation costs
Over time the vehicle you purchase will depreciate in value, like any other vehicle. So the benefit of having a business car means that you can claim some of the loss.

Miles driven
The mileage rate changes every year but you could claim 50c for every mile that your car is driven for businesses purposes.

Leasing costs
If your business is leasing your vehicle, then this payment can be a deduction from your businesses the taxable income.Sometimes this can also include operating costs.

Operating costs
That’s right! If your vehicle is used for business purposes, then you could claim the cost of petrol, servicing/repairs, insurance and even the interest that has accumulated on your vehicle loan.

We recommend for you to speak to your Accountant for specific details regarding tax benefits for your business and to see if you are eligible for the above. If you would like to know more about financing a vehicle for your business call us on 1300 883 983
