Hitting reset on variable business loans rates

It’s been a tough few months for New Zealand business and New Zealanders, and there’s still a long way to go in our recovery. That’s why we've reset our variable priced business loans and overdraft rates by reducing them by 1.00% p.a. This means you'll now have all the flexibility of a variable rate at a significantly lower cost than ever before.

Why get a loan with us?

  • Fixed or variable interest rates.

  • Flexible repayment options.

  • Terms from six months to five years (and sometimes longer).

  • Secured against business or personal assets.

How it works

One of our business lending experts will work with you to figure out the best option for your business. Once we've agreed on a loan amount and term, you'll have a couple of options to choose from:

Fixed rate loans

Your interest rate will stay the same for the agreed term, giving you certainty about repayments.

  • The rate will depend on the terms of your loan and the security you have to offer.
  • You can repay your loan early, but fixed rate break costs may apply.

Variable rate loans

Tailor repayments to suit your cashflow — pay off more when you can.

  • Make lump sum payments whenever you want — good if your income tends to be irregular.
  • Fix all or part of your loan later if you want to.

Table loans

Most of our loans are table loans. This means your payments stay the same over the term of your loan. At the start of your loan, your payments will mostly cover interest — but you’ll pay back less interest and more principal as time goes on.

Interest-only loans

We also offer interest-only loans. These are a good short-term backstop to help ease cashflow as you get set up — your repayments only cover the interest you’re charged, so at the end of the agreed term, the loan will need to be repaid in full or renegotiated.
