Firstly, consider why you are thinking about refinancing – what about your current business loan isn’t working for you? You may want to consolidate multiple loans into one, or reduce your repayments by opting for a loan with a lower interest rate. Perhaps you’d like to free up capital or gain more flexibility within your business. Once you consider your goal for committing to a commercial refinance, it will be far easier to evaluate the options available to you.
Carefully consider the pros and cons – ensure you understand the associated fees with leaving your current loan, as well as the costs and benefits of the prospective loans you are considering. These factors will inform your decision about whether a refinance is worthwhile.
All of your funding should be reviewed annually to ensure its suitability for the requirements of your business. If your funding hasn’t been reviewed in the past two years, chances are your funding arrangements are no longer keeping up with your business needs and may be priced out of the market. It is best practice to review your funding agreements whenever new funding is arranged.
As your business strategies are updated, it is crucial to review your funding arrangements due to the significant (and often limiting) impact funding structures can have on business strategies. Your broker should always be involved in – or at least advised of – any changes to your business strategies so as to ensure funding will not be a roadblock.
