Supporting your business to reach its goals

Our business loans make it easy to get the equipment you need, no matter the size or stage of your business. You can borrow from $2,000 as long as we're confident that you can manage the repayments.

We’ll help you to:

  • fund nearly any kind of business asset – vehicles, tools, office renovations, equipment, machinery, and more
  • find the right asset to use as security
  • tailor repayments to suit your cash flow
  • find the best interest rate.

We lend to people, not products

Our team works closely with you to understand your business needs and what you can afford. We can get your finance sorted in an afternoon, while a bank might keep you waiting for days. We’re in your community, and we’re passionate about helping your business to go further.

What you need to know about applying for a business loan.

How long does it take

Apply in person with proof of your identity, address, income and expenses, and we can usually give you an answer within the hour. Otherwise, we aim to give you an answer on the same day.

After you’re approved

We'll guide you through the loan contract, help you understand your rights and obligations, and then ask you to sign it.

If you have any concerns or questions about your loan agreement, seek advice from your lawyer or accountant before signing.

What you can use as security

We’ll ask you to secure your loan using a vehicle, or another asset, that you own. This asset covers the cost of the loan in case you’re unable to pay it back.

We’ll work out your asset’s value, and you’ll need to prove you're the legal owner and there's no other loan registered against it.

Who can get an MTF Finance loan? If you’re a New Zealand resident or visa holder over 18 years of age and have regular income, you can apply for finance with us.
What things can I get a loan for? Whether it drives, floats or flies, we can finance almost anything! We also offer loans for business vehicle and equipment. We can even offer loans for home renovations or that well-earned break, using an existing asset as security. MTF Finance uses the asset you’re borrowing for (or an asset that you own) as a security for the loan. The asset must exceed $2,000 in value and have a serial number. If you have any questions or need more information about this process, just ask – we’ll be happy to help.
How long does it take to get the money? If you apply in person with supporting documentation, we can often transfer funds to you on the same day that the loan is completed. If it is for a vehicle purchase, we can also arrange to send the funds directly to the seller on your behalf.
How much can I borrow? You may borrow from $2,000 to $500,000 as long as you have sufficient security to support the loan and we’re confident you can manage the repayments.
What are the business advantages of a finance lease with MTF Finance? If you’re a business customer, you may be able to claim GST on the principal portion of each instalment, the interest portion of your payments may be tax deductible. The vehicle is recorded on your balance sheet, so you can also claim depreciation.
How soon will I know if my loan is approved? To consider your application, you must provide: – A valid passport, NZ driver licence or firearms licence – Bank statements, in your name, showing transactions for the last 90 days – Bank statement, utility bill, rates, NZ Government documentation or insurance confirmation showing your name and physical address If you apply in person, and bring these documents with you, we can usually give you an answer on the spot.
What happens when my loan is approved? We’ll talk through the loan document, make sure you understand your rights and obligations under the contract and then ask you to sign it. If you have any concerns or queries regarding the obligations you are entering into, we recommend that you seek advice from your lawyer or accountant before signing the loan document.
Are there any hidden costs? No. The interest rate and all fees are set out in the loan agreement you sign at the beginning of the loan term.
