COE Renewal Loan
COE Renewal Loan
COE renewal loan is considered more practical and offers more value for money because modern cars are engineered to work well for a lifespan of more than 10, 20 years.
When the concept of COE (Certificate of Entitlement of cars) was formed by the government, the lifespan of most cars was only 10 years or even less. Due to improvement in manufacturing techniques and technology, most modern cars are now built to last beyond 10 and even 20 years. Unfortunately, bureaucracy is tough to catch up with technology and our COE is still in its original form of 10 years certification. Of course, the authority and car sellers are happy to see the status quo as long as they are making more money.
It makes more sense to renew COE because a brand new car immediately depreciates upon leaving the car showroom. A lot of the depreciation happens immediately on the day you drove your beloved car out of the showroom, by as much as 20%. As such, there is much value and money smart in either buying a secondhand car or renewing your existing COE to continue driving.
In fact, most people would cherish the familiarity of driving the same family car that gave them so much memory and when the driver is so used to the handling. It would be great to stick to a car that the driver and family has been close to for the past decade.

Banks do not lend for COE renewal loans
Unfortunately, most banks only provide car loans for new cars and do not like to lend money for COE renewal loans. This is because it is not a lucrative sector for them with old cars having low collateral and low interests rate. For my father vehicle which I want to renew last year, I was unable to find a single bank that provide bank loan.
All of them decline this business. I have checked with forums and insiders and most of them mentioned that you either borrow from your family or you have to resort to personal credit lines or moneylenders for the COE renewal lump sum. That is not acceptable as not only is the interest rate high, it will skew the costs and benefits of renewing a COE.
In the end, I found a niche market, and realised that we can have specialist firms lending money to people who renew their COE. The return rate would be low (which is why banks refuse this business), but stable as most such lenders are prudent.
For the lenders, it is definitely great having a COE renewal car loan. For many without cash savings, they may have to resort buying a secondhand car or a brand new car just for the sake of getting a proper bank loan with low down payment. The COE renewal car loan will allow them to proceed with their money smart plan in renewing their original car.
For those who can afford it, the low interest loans will help to lessen the burden of forking out a large sum, and allow them to keep the cash for better potential plans, be it business, stocks or just keeping emergency fund for unanticipated events. The low interests make it a no-brainer to get COE renewal loan. In fact, Timely Enterprise will provide the lowest interest rate in Singapore.
