Strategic Finance Facilitating Agricultural Expansion with Significant Savings


A thriving farming enterprise envisioned expanding their operations by acquiring an additional rural property. With a loan requirement of $4.3 million, the challenge was twofold: first, structuring the finance in a way that accommodated the bank’s LVR requirements; and second, optimising the interest rate to ensure long-term profitability.


Understanding the unique requirements of the agricultural client, we designed a strategic approach. Given the client’s desire to use their SMSF to purchase a portion of the property, we devised a solution that allowed them to meet the bank’s LVR criteria. This innovative approach maximised the use of available resources while still complying with the bank’s regulations. In pursuit of the best financing terms, we engaged in proactive negotiations with various lenders. Our expertise in agricultural finance and our strong relationships within the banking sector played a pivotal role in securing a lower interest rate than initially offered, resulting in significant annual savings for our client.


Our meticulous planning and negotiation efforts culminated in the successful approval of the $4.3 million loan. What’s more, the approved interest rate was lower than the original proposal. This victory translated into an annual saving of $8,600 for our client, illustrating the tangible benefits of securing more favourable finance terms.


Our tailored approach not only navigated the complexity of SMSF involvement but also delivered substantial savings through favourable interest rates. By optimising finance and facilitating the acquisition of the rural property, we not only supported our client’s immediate growth but also paved the way for sustainable long-term success. This case reinforces the critical role of financial expertise in harnessing opportunities and translating them into prosperous outcomes within the agricultural sector.
