    Most business persons usually use their personal account to finance a business. Credit cards are an expensive way to finance long-term debt, and should be used primarily for smaller costs that can be paid off quickly. So it is not advisable to use your credit card to finance you business. In addition to the costly nature of using your personal credit card for business purposes, there is an additional risk associated with this practice.

    A no-no for individuals seeking the cheapest car loan

    UOB Car Loan / United Overseas Bank

    This car loan is a no-no for individuals seeking the cheapest car loan or borrowers seeking to refinance their existing car loan as interest rates of 2.78% and 2.98% don’t come cheap. Irrespective, UOB could be a good backup source of car financing for individuals that are not approved for loans from other banks. Additionally, the bank is unique because it offers flexible car loan repayment schemes and Certificate of Entitlement (COE) loans for used cars.

    OCBC Car Financing / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    This may be the cheapest car loan refinancing option in Singapore as the bank allows borrowers to refinance their existing car loans for a very competitive rate of 2.08%, which is much cheaper than most rates for new loans. While the bank also offers loans for the purchase of new and used vehicles, these rates of 2.78% and 2.98% are not the cheapest available. If you are approved to refinance your existing car loan from another bank, you may be able to save thousands of dollars by switching to OCBC due to its refinance rate of 2.08%, which is significantly cheaper than those of most car loans offered by lenders in Singapore.

    Lowest rates for new and used car loans in Singapore

    DBS Car Loan / DBS Bank

    DBS charges interest rate of 2.28% for its car loans to individuals that apply online and that is the lowest rate offered for both new and used car loans in Singapore. In my opinion this makes DBS the most affordable option for those that require financing in order to purchase a vehicle. It is also worth noting that DBS is currently offering an even lower rate for the purchase of used cars (1.99% p.a.) in a promotion.
