About Southeast Toyota Finance

Since 1981, we’ve provided a wide range of financing and leasing options, along with award-winning customer support to help millions of customers Go Places in their favorite vehicle. We’re excited to have you join us!

Our History

In 1981, we started out as World Omni Financial Corp: the first captive auto finance company established in the United States for an import car manufacturer. In those days, our dealers and customers were having difficulty obtaining credit and competitive interest rates from traditional financial institutions; we wanted to create a solution. Although we changed our name to Southeast Toyota Finance in 1996, not much else has changed since those first days. Our focus has always been two-fold: to support our customers and get them behind the wheel of their dream vehicle, and provide a wide range of financial solutions for Toyota dealers so that they can better serve their customers.
