The Australian Bankers' Association (ABA) and CPA Australia have produced the following two fact sheets which licensees may find useful:
Applying for a loan - One of the key challenges for many small to medium businesses is working out how to approach the bank for a loan. Small businesses often look to finance their business needs with debt. This fact sheet discusses how small to medium businesses can prepare for the bank finance application process.
Dealing with debt - how banks can help if the small business is experiencing financial difficulties. Recent changes in the financial environment and the domestic economy have affected many businesses. If you do encounter problems, it is best to get in touch with your bank as quickly as possible and together work out a strategy for keeping on top of your loan.
