Not all small business loans offered by the Australian government are usable by startup ventures for one reason or another. These may include being intended to help applicants who have already established their ability to use money responsibly by running a business successfully for a determined duration. Unlike general purpose government loans, startup loans focus on interests and needs of a business just getting under way in Australia.
