TFS Introduction

Toyota Financial Services (“TFS”) is the Captive Finance Company for Hino. This means that financing or purchasing the lease of your truck through TFS and your Hino dealer is a great way to maximise the value of the vehicle financing experience.

TFS strives to offer financing options through dealers that are designed to help meet your business needs. By working hand in hand, TFS and Hino dealers draw on each other’s strengths and are able to create flexible finance products that help fit your company’s needs.

Because TFS and Hino Trucks both belong to the Toyota Group of companies, they share a common vision, which is to create an ownership experience that brings the customer back.

This partnership gives you, our customer, many advantages and benefits to maximise the value of your vehicle financing experience, including:

  • Quick & Easy Financing through shared processes between your Hino dealer and TFS. Additionally, unlike most third-party lenders, your Hino dealer and TFS help finance used Hino vehicles.
  • Excellent Customer Service representatives that can help you obtain the answers or expertise you need.
  • Standardised paperwork and processes to handle your financing, including any vehicle turn in or trade-in.
  • Preapproving qualified customers for a credit line so that they can more easily finance additional equipment, without the need to go through a full credit approval process each time.

To sum it all up, Toyota Financial Services are at your disposal to provide you with a simple choice when considering your next truck purchase – a new Hino Truck and financing through your Hino dealer and Toyota Financial Services.

Instalment Finance

Overview

This method of finance allows you to buy your Hino/Toyota of choice by paying instalments over an agreed period. Ownership will pass to you as soon as you’ve paid all amounts due under the agreement. Financing periods can be structured between 12 to 60 months, with or without a final balloon payment. Market-related interest rates apply, which may be linked to the prime lending rate or alternatively fixed, over the agreed finance period. There is no minimum deposit payable unless there is a change to the current legislation or to your credit profile.

Instalments

Instalment sale agreements are typically offered between 6 & 60 months.

Instalment payments can be structured equally over the entire agreement period so that there is no balloon payment at the end. Alternately a final balloon payment can be arranged.

A final balloon payment is a larger than normal final payment resulting in a lower monthly repayment.

Under an instalment sale agreement you become the vehicle owner at the end of the agreement.

Ownership

This is provided that you’ve paid all due amounts under the agreement. When the agreement comes to an end and all due amounts under the agreement have been met, you simply contact Toyota Financial Services to initiate the change of title-holder and re-register the vehicle in your name.

Benefits

  • You own the goods when you've paid the full amount.
  • If the vehicle is an asset used for business, you can claim depreciation as well as yearly interest paid against tax.
  • You'll enjoy the benefit of any resale value.

Suited To

This type of agreement will suit you as an individual, a self-employed individual or if you're a business-owner that would like to own the asset at the end of the agreement.
