If your small business has been affected by a bushfire, free help is available from a financial counsellor.

  • options for managing business debts as well as personal debts 

  • the implications for directors who have guaranteed a business loan or other service/supply 

  • how to dispute business debts in external dispute resolution schemes 

  • how to negotiate repayment arrangements:

o   on a tax debt (company or individual)

Financial counsellors are also trained in negotiation and counselling.
