Notes
  • D14 LENDING TO BUSINESS – BUSINESS FINANCE OUTSTANDING BY BUSINESS SIZE AND INTEREST RATE TYPE
  • Data are compiled based on monthly returns collected by APRA from banks and registered financial corporations that have $2 billion of business credit or more. This threshold captures over 95 per cent of total business credit.
  • Data are subject to series breaks relating to changes in institution reporting and changes in the sample of reporting institutions. Data are not break adjusted.
  • 'Outstanding' is the total outstanding business finance of each lender participating in the Economic and Financial Statistics (EFS) collection and measures the value of lending to resident non-related businesses. Lending includes loans, finance leases and bill acceptances. It excludes reverse repos.
  • A business is classified as small if the reporting entity has exposure to the business of less than $1 million and the business has turnover of less than $50 million. A business is classified as medium if the reporting entity has exposure to the business of $1 million or more and the business has turnover less than $50 million. A business is classified as large if it has a turnover of $50 million or more. 'Exposure' refers to all liabilities that a borrower has owing to the reporting entity.
