The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) expects more small businesses to take out loans as a result of the Australian Government’s May 2015 Budget. CBA’s Clive van Horen says the $A5.5bn small business package should boost the confidence of small businesses and provide them with the incentive to invest in new equipment. However, TS Lim of Bell Potter says that even with the tax breaks, many small businesses will be reluctant to increase their debt.
