Residential / Investment loans

Every day, the media carries stories about property prices.

Watching and commenting on the market has become a national sport. Wayne Armistead goes beyond the headlines and the fake news, to deliver some timely facts.

Property ownership is still the Australian dream.
It’s never too late to invest in property.
Negative gearing and current low interest rates allow purchasers to invest in
property, at a minimal cost.

Whether you are young or old, in the city or the bush, let Plain Speaking Wayne show you how you can purchase property.

Commercial Loans

Cash flow is the life blood of any farm or business.

Often banks don’t understand this or the reality of businesses whose cash flow ebbs and flows from year to year. Based in rural Victoria, WBA Consultants understand life on the land and can help with finance and funding, pending getting the correct structure in place.

Corporate Loans and Business Health Checks

Corporate Loans are traditionally difficult to fund.

Sources of investment are often tied up or offered at above market rates. WBA Consultants can help with Corporate Loans. The first step is to conduct a Health Check of the business. Once that is done, and any pitfalls are identified, it’s time to move to the next step.

Personal Loans

Purchasing Investment property in Australia is known by many to be a very safe form of investing.

Many Australians, even those on a lower income can afford to participate in property investing and reduce the amount of income tax they pay. Because of negative gearing, and current low interest rates, it allows the purchaser to invest in property at a minimal cost. Eventually, it may be possible
for those with multiple properties to achieve a nil tax debt over time.

Accounting Software

If you would like to use industry leading software to manage your debtors, creditors, payroll, rostering and project management WBA Consultants will ensure that you have the best software available. Andrew has a wealth of experience using accounting software to take the stress out of “bookwork” and make your life easier and more efficient

Four Step Process

Negative gearing and current low interest rates allows purchasers to invest in property, at a minimal cost. But how can you take advantage?

Over the years WBA Consultants have helped many people break down the barriers to investing. Through knowledge and experience towards financially gain, through a tested process.

Introducing the Four Steps developed by WBA Consultants.

Four Steps to a more Secure Future

Writing Funding Proposals That Work

Sporting and Community groups

For sporting and community groups, funding from government departments can be the difference between making ends meet and facing an uncertain future.

Sporting Grants. No Walk in the Park

It’s no longer enough to just submit a letter or attend a meeting to get funding.

Grants are becoming more accountable and need to tick a number of boxes before being greenlit.

Ask for the order

For organisations that don’t want to leave their funding to chance…
