Original YT playout date: 3 December 2008
This is one of the rare occasions I vlog in Polish.
It is a little known fact that about 30% of the short term bank loans in existence to business in this country, (which is the lifeline of a far greater proportion of businesses than in the west, where many would be granted longer term finance) is going to come to its repayment date in the next 3 to 8 weeks.
On the one hand money has become scarcer and dearer, on the other hand, banks have to lend to somebody. Planning refinancing a little in advance and doing a little brushing up your business plan and case for finance can help matters, as can a look across the market.
This vlog is basically a warning to firms not to leave renewing their short term loans to the last minute. Those who do will find that many cannot get refinanced this year either at all, or on much worse conditions – even Firms who have been used to getting the same or better conditions year after year.
Asking your banker now, a few weeks prior to the end of the year, gives you a fighting chance of getting a better deal than you would have if you leave asking about it to the last minute. This could mean the survival or failure of some businesses.
Tell your friends.
The above is what I wrote at the time, and here we are 11 years later and the same situation likely to come around again with the next recession. In the meantime, I didn’t have time to keep up with my transfer of content over to this site.
