Boat finance for your business

Thursday 10th April, 2014

Owning a boat is on the to-do list of many Australians, but when it comes to making it happen, most people understandably feel a little out of their depth (pun intended!). That’s why we’ve put together some information to shed light on how boat loans work, as well as some handy hints on how to go about getting boat finance.

Personal Vs. business boat finance

It’s important to distinguish between boat loans for personal customers and those specifically tailored to self-employed and business owners.

Buying a boat for your business can offer certain benefits in terms of tax, which is why there is a need to distinguish personal and business customers.

To qualify for business boat finance, you will most likely need to satisfy the following criteria:

  • You are registered as a legal business entity in Australia and hold an ABN.
  • The boat you intend to purchase will be used primarily for business purposes. This means that you are buying the boat to engage in an income-generating activity, and not simply for your personal enjoyment.

If you’re still unsure about how buying a boat will affect your business, you should seek professional advice from your accountant.
