Secret loan deals lenders don’t tell you

So you think you know how to hunt the best loan deals. But did you know that you could be missing out on some of the juiciest business loan deals on offer?

That’s simply because banks don’t always advertise their lowest business loan interest rates so it’s difficult to know what’s competitive and what’s not.

Also, interest rates on most business loans are negotiated depending on the size of the loan, equity position and overall strength of the application.

But don’t despair. We’ve scoured the most competitive business loan interest rates on offer, where lenders have set pricing.

What are bank bill loans?

Bank bill business loans are a cheaper way to borrow for your business. If you’re a large business borrowing a big amount, usually over $5 million, you may get access to wholesale pricing.

This way you’ll have a cheaper interest rate that’s only a margin above the Bank Bill Swap Bid Rate (BBSY). The BBSY is the rate at which the bank borrows money.

Generally, your interest rate is the BBSY rate plus 0.05%. A customer margin is then added on top of this for risk management purposes.

Banks calculate the customer margin based on the overall risk of the loan application. Higher risk would mean a higher margin, and each bank may calculate this in their own way.

The interest rate changes every few months because your loan will be rolled over to the new BBSY rate plus your customer margin after your 30, 90 or 180-day term ends.

You can check out the bank bill loans page to learn more about this.

Where can I get the best deals?

Business loan interest rates aren’t always consistent among lenders. This is because different lenders perceive your risk as a borrower differently.

By choosing a lender that can consider you to be a low risk, you can get a great deal. We may even be able to negotiate a low interest rate for you.
