Demand lifts in 2017/18 for short-term finance to cover crises
Promoted by NWC Finance.
The first five months of the 2017-18 financial year have seen unprecedented demand from lawyers whose clients are seeking short-term finance.
MANY COMPANIES are facing strong pressure from the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and more onerous loan conditions from major banks, forcing them to look for alternate finance solutions.
The majority of loans provided this financial year to NWC Finance’s clients have been provided literally days before ATO deadlines, property settlements and refinancing deadlines. The director of NWC Finance, Joe Morello, said: “Many of the clients who come to us are experiencing very oppressive conditions placed on their loans at the last minute, which simply can not be met.
“For example, we have just provided a $13 million loan, secured via a first mortgage, straight after our client’s application for bank finance fell over due to a number of onerous conditions being placed on it just days before settlement”, he added.
NWC Finance lends short-term finance of up to $30 million and above on first and second mortgages in property settlements, to prevent wind-up notices and other pre-insolvency events and also general business transactions.
Low doc finance can be arranged with the principals of the self-funded NWC Finance, which has been operating successfully for over a decade, within 24 hours on first mortgages.
The company also provides finance on second mortgages. NWC has assisted lawyers and their clients to find solutions to these problems and have concluded a range of last-minute financing arrangements, like the ones listed below:
