A well-rounded range of business finance options
One of the first considerations when looking for a business loan is, of course, how much you need to borrow.
If you’re looking for a business loan in excess of $1 million - than you will need to look at BankSA’s commercial business lending options.
If you’re looking to finance equipment then BankSA will offer you vehicle and equipment finance that offers tax benefits and flexible loan terms of up to 7 years.
Other options include a business credit card, business line of credit or a business overdraft – all of which are highly effective ways to manage cash flow and fund business growth.
Apply in-branch or by calling BankSA
Since BankSA, as with all divisions of Westpac, have a very wide range of business finance products it is best to discuss your individual needs with a consultant or advisor in person or over the phone.
You cannot apply for a loan online but, you may use their website to fill in a contact request form, after which someone will be in contact with you to discuss your needs.
I can’t pay my business loan on time
Should you encounter problems that may lead to you paying your business loan on time, please inform us. Although you will be liable for extra charges, at least you would have notified us on time. We are aware that clients may be faced with challenges that are beyond their control.
Frequent late payments will give you a bad credit profile. The last thing you need is to have a bad credit record when you are an entrepreneur. This is the reason why we normally ask our customers to not apply for a business loan is they aren’t too certain they will be able to meet the payment schedules.
What is the best payment method for a loan?
When you pay your business loan using the debit order system, it makes things better for all parties involved. This way, you won’t have to remember ensuring that payment was done because the debit order will be automated.
It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that they have sufficient funds on the customer’s bank account on the day of the debit order payment. There will be additional charges that will be paid by the customer in the event of this occurrence.
