2.5 million Australians
17% of the workforce
work for themselves.

 

We celebrate all business owners and entrepreneurs who take on that challenge. We were a start-up once, after all. 

So, while most home loans are still geared towards the 9 to 5 worker who are considered ‘lower risk’ for the lender, there are ways to do things differently to support the 17% (Trading Economics), like you. We’ve found them, and made them faster.

BUSINESS LENDING DONE DIFFERENTLY

Use your home equity to invest in your business

If you’re looking to finance your business, you may be able to secure a better rate on your loan by using your home as security. By refinancing with our CO:Lab home loans, you can release equity in your home for business purposes. In other words, you can have a business loan at home loan rates (and without the hassle of dealing with business lenders).

Financial validation requirements

2 years’ worth of current tax returns or business financial statements. Accountant verified option available

Legal things about our rates. No tricks.

Our rates are current as of 30 November 2018; available to all home loans approved on or after this date, and they can change. Our comparison rates are calculated for a $150,000 loan over 25 years. They factor in our fees associated with applying for the loan; our ongoing fees and our fees associated with leaving the loan. Our fixed and variable interest only loans roll to a variable principal and interest rate at the end of the fixed term. If the interest only period is not specified, the comparison rate is calculated on a one year period. These rates are:
Product
