Interest Rates Market Update

Its the perfect time to look at your current business loans

Current interest rate market update

With the interest rates remaining at a historical low, following the Reserve Bank of Australia's announcement to hold the cash rate at 1.5%, it has never been a better time to review your business loans.

Being the 13th consecutive hold, many economist expect that this will continue through the first quarter of 2018, but then expect to see a full 25 basis points rise by the end of July. The question, however, still continues to be raised - Why are Banks not passing on these savings to small to medium sized businesses?


One of the biggest issues in the system currently being faced is Businesses are not fluidly provided with these savings, rather the Banks maintain rates with customers and pocket the difference. Only when asked the question, are business owners provided with a more competitive rate. Surely there needs to be some level of expectation that Business Bankers will ensure their customers are provided with the best deal available. The problem here - their salaries are paid by the same banks that Businesses are financed by.


With the likes of Aussie and Mortgage Choice in the residential space, home owners have the comfort of knowing someone is on their side. The market is showing a clear need for a similar agent to represent the small business market when tackling and negotiating the right deal with Banks. Lending and funding requirements are becoming more and more complex making it harder and harder for business owners to understand how to structure their business and where to turn to in order to make sure they are getting the best deal.

How you negotiate the best deal is a combination of carrot and stick.  Don’t just think it’s about trying to squeeze the bank to as low as possible an interest rate, sometimes you’ll get the rate even lower if you play “hard to get” and make them chase you.
