On 5 December 2008, in a Media Release, 'Car Dealer Financing: Establishment of a Special Purpose Vehicle', the Treasurer announced the establishment of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), with the support of leading Australian banks, to provide liquidity to eligible car dealers who had been left without wholesale floor plan financing as a result of the departure of GE Money Motor Solutions and GMAC from the Australian market following the onset of the global financial crisis.

The SPV otherwise known as 'OzCar' was legally established as a Trust on 2 January 2009. An Information Guide about the operation of the SPV was announced by the Treasurer on 19 December 2008 in a Media Release, 'Treasurer releases update on Car Dealer Financing and the Special Purpose Vehicle'.

The Car Dealership Financing Guarantee Appropriation Act 2009 provides for an appropriation to enable claims to be paid under the Deed of Guarantee in respect of the Australian Government Guarantee to support interim funding to car dealerships, executed on behalf of the Commonwealth on 23 December 2008.

The Commonwealth Government Deed of Guarantee, an overview of the trust arrangements supporting the operation of the OzCar Car Dealership Financing Arrangements and supporting documents are available below.
