to include any tax implications in making
the calculations.

Your bank will look at how much money
or equity you are prepared to put in
yourself (about 50% is normally required
but it can vary), the security offered, your
financial record and proven business
acumen or other factors if applicable.
In certain exceptional cases, with well-
known proven systems or where the
equipment or stock lends itself to this
approach, the bank may also do some
debenture lending or cashflow lending.
This can reduce the total security
required. Because of the many variables
involved, this will be judged on a case-by-
case basis.

You may also need more than a simple
loan. The right mix of finance may
include: short-term working capital
(e.g., an overdraft facility); medium-
term business finance (e.g., a term
loan); long-term finance or equipment
leasing. The bank would look at the term
of your franchise agreement; the debt
servicing capabilities of the business and
the particular needs of the industry in
determining the best mix of financing. In
some cases, leasing vehicles or specialist
equipment can reduce the actual initial
borrowing required.

With proven systems the perceived risks
are lower and the loan requirements are
often more relaxed. This is another reason
for you to expect that your business
banker should have knowledge about
the franchise systems in which you are
interested.

      Your handsome Country House is set in its own 12 acres of farm-park with sweeping views over Lake Rotorua. Your chef is preparing dinner for your
      international guests. Your house-staff have prepared each of the twelve individually decorated, ensuite guestrooms. Your gardener has the grounds
        looking like something from Country Garden magazine. The fire is roaring in the comfortable drawing room. Guests are enjoying a game of tennis
         before a swim in your pool and cocktails in the bar. Having selected tonight’s wines from the cellar, you are enjoying your guests’ company and
      helping them to plan their next day’s activities. Business is good but you can see how to double the revenue because between you and your partner
     you have marketing skills, taste, a flair for hospitality and a belief in NZ tourism. This boutique hotel has 5 stars Qualmark. Recent valuation of Land &
