It is a difficult concept to grasp but a great deal of bank debt on loans that are in or nearing default is really accumulated interest that has reduced business or farm profit whilst being accumulated onto unpayable loans. That itself reduces future profit to service debt and so the cycle collapses on itself.
When GBAC researches the background of debts that are in trouble we frequently find that the borrower has been seriously misled, sometimes defrauded by the bank. The recent Banking Royal Commission revealed the staggering level of dishonesty in the banking and finance industry. GBAC has been aware of it and dealing with it since 1987 when banks were deregulated and allowed to do pretty much anything they liked to customers as long as it made big profits for the banks and big pay packets for the CEOs. Politicians issued them with licenses to print money and rob customers.
Debt turned into profit
But we are able to turn the tables in many instances and have the banks write off some of their ill-gotten gains. We have over the past 30+ years seen vast amounts of debt turned into profit. A few examples are $5 million from a $30m loan facility, $1m offered from a $7m debt; $700,000 from a $1.4m farm loan and $650,000,the whole of one retail business debt, completely turned into profit.
When banks act dishonestly under the direction of dishonest directors who know they will not go to gaol because they are protected by politicians, those banks deserve to write off dishonestly acquired debts. When we agree with a bank to have that done, it in fact delivers fresh profit back into the hands of the borrower.
There are plenty of people out there who claim to help bank customers who have large unaffordable debts, but few of them have the persuasive powers that GBAC does. We are qualified Accountants, we have run our own businesses and farms and we have a passion for fair treatment of Australians by those they trust and deal with. We also have a secret weapon against predatory bankers. All of the solutions we obtain are the result of the bank agreeing with us about the mistreatment of their customers and the amount of debt to be written off. We do not ever reveal the names of the banks who have been kind enough to deliver this unexpected profit into the hands of our clients.
If you have business or farming friends in trouble with banks, suggest they make contact via our websites www.gbac.com.au/business or www.gbac.com.au/farm . It costs nothing to have a chat about whether some of those debts might be converted into profits.
