be clear and concise - make sure your application speaks clearly about your business, so that even if the reader knows nothing about your plans, they will still be able to understand
be specific about the money - make sure that you have a clear plan on what the CBA funding would be used for, and be ready to support your request with facts.
build a 12-month income forecast - if you are successful, we will be asking for a projection of your sales income for the 12 months & 3 years to come, so why not get started on it now? Check this link to get a copy of our EXCEL financial forecast worksheet.

Our review team meets biweekly to review applications, and depending on application activity, you should normally expect to hear back within 2-3 weeks. During exceptionally busy times, this may extend to 4-5 weeks.
Following our review, you will hear whether or not your application was successful and, if it was, then you can expect some clarification questions about your business plans, revenue forecast and more.
Quite likely, we will also request a copy of your BUSINESS PLAN. Ideally, this would be ready in CBA-standard form: A WORD document covering all aspects of your plan, supplemented with a matching EXCEL sheet that contains the financial forecasts for your success.

Depending on the level of investment, we may also hold a series of due diligence interviews plus a brief financial audit so that we can both get to know each other as we make plans to work together.
