To our friends, families and valued clients,

 

We are now into the third month of this very difficult and challenging time, not just for Australia, but the world. I would like to remain optimistic and suggest that we will hopefully be through this in the short term, but the reality is that we just don’t know. What we do know right now is that consumers are really hurting and urgent relief is required. It is really pleasing to see some of the swift assessments and changes from some of the large retailers and food groups offering casual work in the thousands for those who have lost their jobs in hospitality, tourism, and travel. I appreciate however that there are thousands of others that will not be as fortunate and will need to rely heavily on the outcomes of the government stimulus packages that are going to be deployed in the short term.

As an SME, Glass Financial is in the same position as a lot of companies going through this challenging time, but we are fortunate to be in a position where we are still able to operate and support our clients and also those in need. All of our banks and lending partners are still in operation so we are able to cater to a lot of different situations and circumstances across residential, commercial, asset finance and working capital solutions. We are still actively working with private lenders to provide well-supported asset lends to customers that need a short term facility or purely a more flexible option. There are a lot of clients that we are currently working with to improve their current positions to ensure that when we get through this unprecedented time, and we will, that there are opportunities and options to look forward to.

 

We know that apart from this there are a lot of clients who are also in need of other solutions where debt may not be an option. To assist with this please find below a link that might just be able to provide you with some information that will assist you with access to Government benefits, helpline and websites for support, solutions for SMEs outside of debt, tax incentives and understanding of what stimulus options are available.
