The contours of the business operational landscape have undergone marked transformations in recent years, propelled by the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic.

The very modus operandi governing business practices has undergone recalibrations across diverse domains, with operators adroitly adapting to the evolving milieu—oftentimes necessitating pivots back to their original models. The labor market has borne witness to fluctuations, with jobs lost and regained, and a notable phenomenon dubbed the "Great Resignation" echoing the US sentiment, prompting workers to embark on career transitions catalyzed by pandemic-induced reflections. In Australia, a substantial cohort has gravitated towards initiating their own enterprises, viewing entrepreneurship as an appealing alternative to traditional full-time employment.
Establishing a nascent small business is a riveting venture, brimming with possibilities and prospects.

We outline what options we can offer and what is involved in the application process.
First Loan: No Docs and Low Docs Truck Loans
In the majority of cases, new businesses embarking on their inaugural loan application won’t possess the complete array of financial records and requisite documentation that lenders customarily demand. Within the lending sphere, these records and documents are commonly denoted as ‘docs’.
For business that do not have these docs, there are lenders that offer what is known as No Docs and Low Docs Truck Loans. The difference between ‘no’ and ‘low’ is essentially the quantity of documentation that is provided.
These are loan descriptions rather than specific types of finance and as such relate to all the available forms of truck loan products:-
- Low Docs Chattel Mortgage
- Low Docs Truck Leasing
- Commercial Hire Purchase for Trucks, Low Docs
- Rent to Own with Low Docs

- Docs can include profit/loss statements; tax returns; BAS statements; business accounts which can be verified with bank statements and similar docs.
- Docs can be professionally prepared by a certified accountant or simple spreadsheets and projections prepared by the business owner.
- In the case of very new set-ups and start-ups a form Business Plan may be requested. Templates for preparing these can be found online through a range of sources.
- The truck finance & leasing interest rates offered to Low Docs and No Docs Loan can be highly competitive. The category does not by definition always attract a higher interest rate on the loan.

Sourcing Low Docs Loan Lenders
Low documentation (low docs) and no documentation (no docs) truck loans represent a viable avenue for financing that empowers nascent businesses to acquire the requisite assets for driving their operational endeavors. Navigating this terrain, however, involves identifying lenders who extend such financing options and deftly negotiating to secure the most favorable interest rates. Within this context, Jade Truck Loans assumes dual roles—facilitating the search for compatible lenders and adroitly negotiating optimal terms on behalf of our clientele.
Traditionally, these types of loans are more readily offered by non-bank lenders, particularly those specializing in heavy vehicle finance, as opposed to conventional banks. While select banks may extend these loan options, it is often the specialist non-bank lenders that take precedence. These specialist lenders typically operate through dedicated finance avenues, consisting of finance brokers and established professional lenders such as Jade Truck Loans. Business proprietors often lack direct access to these specialized lenders, necessitating engagement through intermediaries like Jade to navigate these channels effectively.
