Small businesses require starting capital to get their business flourishing, but this can often be difficult to acquire through a bank due to the masses of paperwork required. Hodgestone Finance has helped many small businesses obtain low doc small business lending, with one of these clients being a small business owner based in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs.

This client owned their home unencumbered (meaning there was no mortgage), and needed to raise funds in order to keep their business growing. Hodgestone Finance structured a low doc commercial facility where only one BAS Statement was required, unlike other lending options that require complicated documents to be completed and submitted.

Hodgestone Finance could thereby raise up to 100% of the value of the client’s home, which enabled the client to implement his growth plans within just two weeks of seeking assistance from Hodgestone Finance.

By procuring a small business loan from Hodgestone Finance, the client saw a significant increase in the profitability of his business.

Small Business Loan

  1. Full doc business finance
  2. Low doc business finance
  3. Non-conforming – or “no doc” – business finance
  4. Private lender business finance
  5. Bad credit loan options
  6. Bridging loans to help move from one office to another

Whether you want to leverage the equity in your home for business purposes or you have bad credit, contact Hodgestone Finance to access the best small business loans for you.

Low Doc Business Loans

Low Doc Business Finance

Most bank loans require a vetting process where your tax returns, financial statements and other records are assessed to ensure you are a reliable borrower. If you can’t provide some of the necessary documents for a standard full doc loan (e.g. if you’re self-employed), low doc business finance could be for you.

Generally, low doc business loans only require:

  1. A business activity statement
  2. An accountant’s statement

Hodgestone Finance can also assist you with non-conforming small business loans. Sometimes mislabelled as “no-doc loans”, non-conforming loans are non-bank finance options with less stringent requirements.

I was at major risk of losing my block of Land, I had a week to settle to avoid this. I contacted Hodgestone, who structured my loan with a private lender and it was settled 4 days later! I highly recommend Hodgestone to everyone.
