How to use tax deductions to your advantage


Silver Chef warmly welcomes the Federal Government's initiative to stimulate and strengthen the economy through a renewed focus on small businesses. Those with an annual turnover of less than $2 million can claim a tax deduction for each asset they purchase up to $20,000.

Silver Chef is passionate about supporting small business heroes, like you! Our mission is to help business owners succeed and bring their dreams to life - whether that's running your own café or restaurant, expanding your existing business or opening more stores.

What you may not know is that you can use Silver Chef and the government deduction to super charge your business. Our Rent-Try-Buy® Solution is specifically designed for hospitality business owners and works hand-in-hand with the government's tax initiative to give you maximum benefit and flexibility.

Rent-Try-Buy gives you the much-needed flexibility to quickly adjust your business plans in response to changing consumer tastes and dining trends, and to make important capital investment decisions at the time of your choosing. Remember, it's the use of the equipment – not the ownership of it – that makes a business successful, so there's no need to spend your cash on depreciating equipment and have this as a liability on your profit and loss statement.

Silver Chef's Finance is PURRE

With our short 12 month agreement, you can:

U – Upgrade any piece of equipment at any time with no penalty;

R – Return the equipment after 12 months with no further obligation; or

  • Boost your competitive edge and take advantage of industry trends. We have 5 flexible options and a short 12 month agreement.
  • 98% approval rating (highest in the industry by nearly 30%)
