• Welcome to Capricorn

    Take a tour through our offices and find out more about

    who we are and what we do.

  • Capricorn was founded by its Members, for its Members

    Capricorn is a member based organisation proudly operating by cooperative principles to make it easier for its more than 17,000 Members to run and grow their automotive businesses.

    Easier because Capricorn Members enjoy instant trade credit with Capricorn’s extensive network of automotive suppliers throughout Australia and New Zealand.

    Easier because Capricorn Members benefit from simplified accounting as the hassle of multiple invoices from many different suppliers is replaced by the convenience of one very simple monthly bill.

    Easier because Capricorn Members can access so much more – from equipment finance to a fuel cardtravel services, risk protection and insurance

    And easier because Members earn valuable reward points which can be redeemed to purchase gift cards, event tickets, make supplier purchases, book travel and more.  

    About Capricorn Society

    Capricorn was established in 1974 by a small group of Western Australian service station owners to increase their buying power and level the playing field with the big multinational oil companies. We are a member based organisation proudly operating by cooperative principles to primarily support businesses in the automotive industry. Our approach allows our Members to better manage their businesses by saving time and money.

    We offer our Members a broader range of services, including equipment finance, travel services and business protection. Operating on cooperative principles means our Members are the owners too and are eligible to receive dividends, if declared. Members also enjoy regular social and networking events.

    Today, we have over 17,000 Members and over 1,800 committed Preferred Suppliers across Australia and New Zealand, all looking to support the automotive industry. The story behind our fantastic organisation is one in which we love to share.
