BankSA Small Business Loans

Borrow from $20,000 up to $3,000,000. Interest rates are variable and other fees are applicable.

BankSA’s small business loan comes with a fixed and variable interest rate option. You can borrow from $20,000 up to $3,000,000. Terms will depend on the type of security offered. For variable rate commercially secured loans, the maximum term is 25 years. For variable rate residentially secured loans, the maximum term is 30 years. With a variable rate loan, you can make additional repayments without penalty and security options include cash, property, a guarantee or business assets. You can also opt between an interest only or principle, interest and fees repayment structure. Interest rates, however, will fluctuate monthly based on market rates. Fixed interest loans, however, provide rate certainty, making it easier to predict repayments and budget. You can also pay interest in advance for a year. Rates for variable loans start from 4.95% p.a. BankSA also has a special offer with lower variable rates from 2.68% p.a., but shorter terms up to 5 years.
