Free banking & finance advice for small business

Free banking & finance advice for small business

theBankDoctor offers free banking and finance advice to help small business owners get the best business banking set-up.

The resources on this website will help you make smarter decisions on the best way to finance your business.  There are many issues to consider starting with having an appropriate balance between debt and equity. Its critical to have a sound understanding of the risks and benefits of different forms of debt and equity. And when dealing with lenders, its not just about the interest rate. Other components of your financing package can be just as important such as the security requirements, adequacy of approved limits, loan terms and conditions, reporting requirements, covenants and product suitability.

Most small business owners don’t like banks and struggle when dealing with them.  Sometimes it’s not easy to get a loan or just to understand if you are getting the best possible deal. And finding time to deal with banks can also be a challenge.  Many owners don’t have anyone they can turn to for quality independent business finance advice. 

That’s where we come in. We provide independent, practical and totally free business banking and finance advice that will help you get the best banking set-up for your business. We are a Not for Profit organisation independent of any bank, non-bank lender, advisor or any other organisation. We are not brokers and take no fees or income from advertising nor do we give anyone access to our followers. Every resource on this website is free for you to use as you see fit.
