The Australian government may indeed be able to help you start a small business in the form of loans and grants, which are funded by money set aside each year from the respective budgets for this purpose. There are some offers for general small business needs. This also goes for some for more specific parts of opening a small business. When looking for a loan or grant, be certain you pay attention to the eligibility conditions for the programs you are considering. This also goes for the interest rates, terms and repayment schedules within the case of loans.
