Please refer to your Hire Purchase agreement for your instalment due date.

Otherwise, you are required to write in with the request for our consideration and pay the requisite administrative fee / differential interest.

Upon loan disbursement, which is subject to documentation being in order, we will send the Hire Purchase agreement via registered mail within 7 days. Please email to email@example.com for any assistance.
I have received a copy of Hong Leong Finance’s tax invoice together with the Hire Purchase agreement. Why is the amount stated therein not the loan amount? Can I use this invoice to claim back the GST from Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore?
The tax invoice includes GST on the car purchase. For hirers who are Corporations/and a GST registered company, the tax invoice may be used to claim back the GST. For hirers who are individuals, GST claim is not applicable and therefore the tax invoice is for your information only.
The taxable amount stated may differ from the car purchase price because the price is made up of several components. Of which, some are not subject to GST (e.g. COE, road tax, additional registration fee, registration fee).
