The Benefits of Auto Refinancing for Small Business

As a small business owner, you know the importance of cash flow. Without it, your company could face challenges, which is why it’s always beneficial to look for ways to improve your finances.

Enter, auto refinancing. Why pay more for your vehicles when you don’t have to? With interest rates at record lows and favourable terms available, you could quickly lower your monthly payments without much effort. Here are some benefits of auto refinancing for small business owners:

4 Good reasons to refinance

1. Lower interest rates: In recent months, the Bank of Canada has lowered its overnight lending rate. As a result, interest rates on auto loans have also dropped. It may not seem like significant savings, but you could actually save hundreds—or thousands—of dollars over the term of your loan.

2. Extended loan term: When refinancing you, could choose a longer-term that may help you lower your monthly payments. While this will improve your cash flow, you might end up paying more interest in the long run.

3. More money in your pocket: A lower interest rate and/or extended-term will usually result in lower monthly payments. The money you’re saving can be diverted to more pressing needs that your business may have.

4. It’s quick: It doesn’t matter if you have a single car or a fleet of vehicles, it only takes 10 minutes to fill out an application. If you have additional questions, you can always contact one of our specialists.

How car loan refinancing works

Many people don’t realize that you can’t refinance with the company that currently owns your loan. That means you should shop around and get a quote to see what rates are available to you.

If the terms are acceptable to you and you’re approved, your existing loan will be paid off with your new one. You’ll now begin paying down the new loan with potentially better rates.

Should you refinance your auto?

Even if your business is running smoothly, and you’re not having any cash flow issues, refinancing can be a good move. If your credit score has increased and/or interest rates have dropped, you can likely lower your monthly payments, which means more money in your pocket.

Lower monthly payments would also help businesses that are currently in a challenging position with their finances. Since you may not have to dedicate as much money to your vehicles, you can reallocate your resources to other parts of the business that need attention.

What vehicles can be refinanced

Competitive rates and flexible terms can be found on both new and used vehicles, as well as the following types of vehicles:

  • Commercial vans and trucks
  • Delivery vehicles (cargo and cube vans)
  • Light and medium-duty trucks up to 1 ton
  • Consumer automobiles
