A balloon payment refers to an agreed upon sum of money owed to the lender by the consumer at the conclusion of their loan. If a balloon payment has been taken up, it gives consumers the opportunity to access a reduced monthly repayment rate.
Balloon payments differ from lender to lender and vary based on the agreed upon amount by the two parties. The maximum amount a balloon payment will be is capped at 50 per cent of the total loan amount. For example, if the loan is for $20,000, the maximum balloon payment would be $10,000.

Obtaining a car can be done through either a regular car loan or a novated lease. There are a few main similarities as well as some key differences that you need to consider when deciding what’s best for you. Both options require regular repayments and include the option to add a balloon payment at the conclusion of your loan period. A novated lease means that you’re entering a three-way deal with your lender, your employer and yourself, whilst a car loan is yours from day one. The repayments for car loans are paid with after-tax earnings while novated lease repayments use pre and post-tax pay.
