ThinCats is Australia’s only specialised Business Acquisition and Vendor Finance marketplace lender.

Most Banks and Non-Banks do not lend in this space without first mortgage property collateral. We do and are currently seeing a significant growth in loan enquiries via our current Business Broker and Accountant network.

This appears to be a logical consequence of a growing number of first-generation SME business owners retiring and seeking to sell their business to an increasing number of qualified, skilled and experienced new migrants and locals seeking sustainable self-employment.

Sadly, without adequate cash or equity in real estate, many qualified and experienced business operators miss out. Similarly, Vendors may be persuaded to sell their business to less qualified cashed up operators, only to see their long-established businesses fail, often in a very short period of time.

At ThinCats we have been operating primarily in this area for over 8 years with a team of senior lenders (ex-bankers), specialised in evaluating and providing swift approvals providing bespoke structured loans for the acquisition and sale of Businesses and Franchises

Most importantly, buyers must be able to evidence industry relevant qualifications and business operational experience and have a clear credit history.
