"May you live in interesting times" says the ancient Chinese curse and, boy, are we certainly living in them. The Corona virus has smashed through business in Australia with the force of a Tsunami and nobody knows the ultimate impact that it will have.
In response, the government has released a whole raft of packages aimed at assisting business and its employees to survive this massive storm.
One of those packages is the Corona Virus SME Guarantee scheme and it could be a lifesaver for your business.
The Scheme provides eligible small businesses access to up to $250,000 in unsecured funding for up to three years, including an initial six-month repayment holiday with accrued interest to be amortised over the remainder of the loan.
The major benefit to business with this scheme is because the government is guaranteeing the loans it should mean that the interest rates charged will be a lot less than the rates currently charged for unsecured lending.
So far, the government has approved 34 banks and non-lenders to participate in the scheme.
Given the limited time span and the evolving nature of the scheme it is important to make contact with knowledgeable and experienced finance brokers such as Horizon Specialist Finance to ensure you receive the most up to date advice and whether you qualify for a loan through the scheme
