Mr Brett Olsen has owned his wholesale butcher company “Wholesale Butchers” for the past four years. He is the sole director and shareholder of the company. The past six months has seen an influx in orders and, to keep up with demand, he requires another refrigerated van in order to maintain delivery standards and turnaround times to his respective buyers.

Mr Olsen is purchasing a second hand van, 1 year old, from RV Dealers for $55,000 and is considering a 5 year Chattel Mortgage (CM), with an interest rate of 9% and monthly repayments of $1,133.21. He has opted not to provide a deposit and is not seeking any balloon at the end of the loan term. As no deposit is to be applied, repayments will be monthly in advance. Brett’s only business debts are an overdraft with CBA with a limit of $25,000 and current balance of $2,800 and his CM with Esanda or his existing refrigerated van, monthly repayments $1,058 pm with 2 years remaining.

His financials for the financial years ending 2014 and 2015 are provided here for your perusal and assessment.
