Supporting the flow of credit

Supporting the flow of credit

 

Aim

To mitigate the adverse economic impact on businesses by providing access to affordable credit.

The RBA, together with the Government and APRA will provide at least $90 billion of credit at a fixed interest rate of 0.25% to banks and other lenders.

Banks and other lenders will provide heavily discounted loans to small businesses as a flow on effect. 

Benefit

Affordable unsecured 3-year loans of up to $250,000 with an initial 6 month repayment holiday.

The Government is encouraging lenders to provide facilities to SMEs that only have to be drawn if needed. Meaning, the SME will only incur interest on the amount they draw down.

Eligibility

Dependent on lenders’ credit assessment process. You will need to consult your selected lender.

Applying

Speak to your preferred lender. The Scheme will commence early April 2020 and last until 30 September 2020. If you don’t have one, you can ask us to introduce you to our preferred partners that can help.
