About Salute Finance Ltd

Salute Finance Limited

Salute Finance Limited is Toyota Tanzania’s financial services arm. Since it began in 2012, it has been the leading leasing company in Tanzania, providing tailor-made full maintenance and finance lease solutions.
SFL works with both blue chip and local business enterprises to offer leasing that works for them, offering creative solutions for any asset needs. The business has developed an unparalleled reputation for professionalism, customer service and transparency.

What does SFL do?

Every business requires assets for its day-to-day operations which may require huge upfront capital outlays.  SFL provides a solution to this problem.  Its Operational lease product provides an off-balance sheet method of financing that allows access to the assets you require without spending your capital on depreciating assets, but instead utilizing it on your core business.

Through its Operational lease, SFL offers 100% finance on all brand-new Toyota vehicles with no collateral required and provides you with the tools to proactively manage your fleet. SFL’s unique expertise in vehicles and finance encompasses every aspect of the fleet management lifecycle – from tracking, maintenance, insurance, upgrades, vehicle modification to disposal

All at highly competitive rates and with a single payment schedule that allows you to accurately focus your fleet budget.

Why leasing makes business sense:

Brand new Toyota vehicles – You benefit from choosing any model across our Toyota range of vehicles.

Financial benefits – Leasing is an operational expense, and therefore will be reflected on your profit & loss statement rather than your balance sheet. This approach will improve your company’s liquidity and financial ratios.

Tax Benefits – As SFL provides a commercial service, they are entitled to take a Value Added Tax (VAT) input credit. This benefit is 100% passed onto the customer.

Guaranteed Peace of Mind – The lease payments made covers all your insurance risks, maintenance, and service cost, easing up your administration and paperwork.

Frees up your money – Leasing allows you to utilize your money on your core business.

Optimize your cash flow – Purchase the asset you need today and spread out the payment across its useful life.

Entry 1:
Toyota Homeless Helper by Remanika Simhadri (age 11)
My Toyota dream car is designed to help people of all ages who are homeless and struggling to survive for their livelihoods in this pandemic time. My car is a mobilised car giving vaccines to those unreachable people.

Mom Car by Ataa Abbas Abdi (age 12)
Mom car scans the mother’s whole personality and stores all information within. When a mother passes away, this car takes care of the child virtually. The child virtually. The child doesn’t feel lonely and copes with the loss easily; guide and follow up on the child’s daily activities.

Entry 3:
Women empowerment car by Mahee Pritesh Chohan (age 12)
My Toyota women empowerment car gives power and opportunity to women to fight for their rights and helps them get their desired jobs and be successful in life. In some villages, educating women seems like it is optional.  My Toyota dream car goes country by country, supports women’s power, and proves that women can achieve every goal in life.
