Apply for funding

Silver Chef backs potential and approves 96% of applicants, most of the time within 24 hours. You can apply either through your preferred equipment dealer or directly with Silver Chef by phone or online at silverchef.com.au/apply.

Get your equipment

Once approved, your equipment dealer will finalize your transaction and arrange delivery. If you are funding equipment for a business you have owned for over 2 years, you’re not required to pay a security bond. For all other applicants, a 6 week refundable security bond is required.

12 month rental agreement

Rent-Try-Buy® is a 12 month agreement that lets you try before you buy. During this time you can:

  • Upgrade at any time. For example, if your 2 Group coffee machine isn’t keeping up with your orders, replace it with a 3 Group and pay the difference in weekly payments.
  • Purchase at any time. Once you know the equipment is right, you have the option to purchase. You’ll receive a 75% net rental rebate on your payments to date.

Weekly rental payments

Save your working capital with low weekly payments that – being a rental agreement – are 100% tax deductible* as well as off-balance sheet, meaning it won’t affect your ability to borrow for future expansion.
