Soaring inflation, rising interest rates. Is small business bridging finance your next move?

Interest rates are rising earlier than expected. But it’s not too late to lock in the bridging finance you need to keep your business moving forward.

Prices of lettuce are rising

We’ve been expecting it for quite some time. However, when it finally happened and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) governor Philip Lowe fronted the media back in May to announce the official cash rate was rising by 25 basis points to 0.35 percent, it sent ripples throughout the Australian community.

With soaring inflation rates and money now more expensive to borrow, could bridging finance for your small business be the answer?

Interest rates so far in 2022

In March, we talked about imminent rate rises. At the time, it was all conjecture. Well informed conjecture, but nobody was certain when it would all happen. Just as we predicted, the traditional lenders were quick to pass on interest rate rises to their customers. This means if you carry both personal and commercial debt, you’re looking at a double whammy of increased repayments.

With more rate rises expected before Christmas , and new Federal Treasurer Jim Chalmers predicting ‘more pain before inflation is brought under control’ , if you’re not proactively involved in sourcing the best small business finance, you could be doing yourself and your business a great disservice.

 

Industries in crisis

It seems we can’t go a week without hearing or reading about the devastating economic impacts a prolonged pandemic, a war in Europe and now skyrocketing inflation are having on many industries. If your business is struggling financially, business bridging finance could be the answer. Don’t wait until it’s too late and the wolf is at the door.

Should the worst happen, we’re here to help keep your business doors open.
