Being self-employed, your business, finances and lifestyle are unique when it comes to loans
Banks are major lenders – there is no doubt about that. But they sell products aimed at the mass market.
These don’t consider adding in the advantages uniquely available to tradies, self-employed and sole traders. Worse, because self-employed are considered high risk, loans are often harder to get and come with higher interest, fees and restrictions.
Well, we just don’t think that’s good enough.
That’s why we created Tradies Finance. We help self-employed people including tradies, and sole traders not only get a fair deal, but the best deal we can get – by uniquely structuring loans for each person’s situation.
You’re better off with Tradies Finance
How do we do it you ask?
Tradies Finance is a Specialist Lender. This means we don’t have to rely on retail loan products made for the masses and can disadvantage you especially if you’re a tradie or self-employed. We can structure loans that help you take advantage of the right financial tools so you’re better off now and in the future.
The self-employed finance experts
With our years of experience in finance, we promise a service that will help you achieve your financial goals and be better off because we can provide opportunities that other lenders don’t.
We’re passionate about helping people. That means simplifying the complicated so you can make confident decisions, and have more control of your money. It also means going the extra mile, because sometimes we have to dig really deep to find the best solution for you!
What if I’m not a Tradie or self-employed?
That’s ok, we can help you too! If you want tailored loan options that suit your personal financial situation and goals, you’ve come to the right place.
