In simple terms, commercial finance products can protect and maximise your cash flow and help fund opportunities for growth when and where you need them. It’s a matter of understanding your business needs and matching them to the right solution. And that’s where a commercial finance broker comes in.
It’s not just about finding great interest rates and saving you money. It’s about providing opportunities for you to build your business with the right deal, the right structure, the right terms and the right price all in place.
We work for you
The first thing we do is get to know you and your business before identifying the right type of finance product to suit your needs. Then we shop around for the most suitable loan and go in to bat for you with the lenders to help secure the right finance. It’s like having a high level financial controller on your books without the high level salary.
We have access to a variety of different lenders with a multitude of loan products and we stay up to date with the constant changes and latest business lending solutions.
Our understanding of the complexities of structuring finance and the criteria the lenders use to assess applications means we can make sure the process is as quick and hassle-free as possible.
From start to finish
Once we agree on the right financial solution for you, we take care of the application, lodge it with the lender and manage it through to approval. We take care of it all so you’re free to take care of your business.
Getting the right financial product can benefit your business in many different ways. Every business has different goals and a commercial finance broker can work with you to take advantage of the many financial products in the market across equipment and vehicle finance and leasing; business loans; debtor finance; commercial property finance, or property development and construction finance.
The right financial solution can help you:
Protect and manage your cash flow
Finance business growth
Simplify your financing to make things easier to manage and budget for
Reassess your current loans to reduce fees and charges, save on lower interest rates and take advantage of new products in the market
Have more flexibility and be ready to make the most of new opportunities when they present themselves
Getting the best out of what is on offer
It’s our relationships with the lenders that can really work in your favour. We know the industry well, inside and out. We know how the lenders work and what they want, so we know how best to position your business to take advantage of the superior lending opportunities, product types, rates and fees that are on offer.
Promoting your interests in the best possible light can often see lenders competing for the opportunity to work with you and your business.
And because we stay on top of changes in the lending market we’re across new products and changes as they happen. This allows us to get a sense of lenders’ attitudes changing within a particular industry or sector. If a lender’s policy changes or funding appetite changes in your industry, we can create strategies to ensure it is business as usual for you.
This means that not only will we be able to find the right product and structure today; we can also ensure it is still the right deal when it comes time to review.
We do the hard yards
Once we’ve got to know you and your business goals, and have done the leg-work to identify and help you choose the right solution to achieve your objectives, we take care of all the paperwork.
We prepare the funding submission from beginning to end, put together a funding strategy that positions you in the best light with the lenders. We deal and discuss your needs across a panel of lenders who want to do business with you. Then we go into bat for you and negotiate to get the most ideal loan structure, terms, rates and fees, and manage the whole process through to approval.
We’re with you for the long term
It’s just good business; as your business grows, so does ours. The more we work with you, the better understanding we have of where you are right now and where and how you want to build your business. Our knowledge, our networks and constant contact with the lending sector allows us to keep you one big step ahead of the game and to help protect and grow your business as opportunities arise.
We check in regularly with you throughout the life of the loan, and with our panel of lenders, to give you the peace of mind that the right deal we helped you secure is still the right deal well into tomorrow. This is important, as the finance industry is so dynamic and ever-changing, and no doubt your business, and your business situation, is too.
Why not go direct to your bank manager?
When you start going directly to banks yourself, you’ll quickly realise that there are a lot of options out there, which makes it hard for you to choose the right product and the right structure.
Sometimes, having all your finances with the one bank may not be the right strategy. And, with the Reserve Bank moving official interest rates and banks moving them independently, it’s an ever-changing market. With choice comes complexity. It can be tricky to navigate through it all. And it can take a lot of your time. A commercial finance broker will steer you through to find the finance product that suits your business needs and not the banks’.
And, banks love dealing with us and we often find ourselves jumping to the head of the queue. As specialists in our field we make doing business with us efficient and economical, which is why so much of the banking sector’s commercial business now comes through finance brokers.
In the simplest terms, a commercial finance broker makes it easy – saving you time and allowing you to get on with business.
