Frequently asked questions

A balloon payment is a lump sum paid at the end of your loan term. Calculated as a percentage of your total business car loan, the payment is called a ‘balloon’ because the amount is typically larger than your regular loan repayments. A balloon payment could help you get the vehicle that your business needs while freeing up your cash flow via lower monthly repayments. However, you’ll pay more interest over the loan term. Without a balloon payment, your monthly repayments will be higher and you’ll pay less interest, but won’t need to pay a lump sum at the end of the loan term.
