who’s got your back
Backing your business every step of the way.
We’re partners who understand the ins and outs of business. We get that sometimes you need backing from a partner who really has your back. Let’s talk about how we can to grow your business sustainably and responsibly.
When opportunity knocks, answer.
Through insight and understanding we can structure an overdraft facility to give your business the financial flexibility to uniquely suit its own path. By granting your business access to additional overdraft funds, your business can act when it needs to, regardless of what the bottom line reads. Because we understand that working capital allows you to equip, enlarge or sometimes simply carry your business when it matters the most.
With Grobank there are no minimum monthly repayments, provided you remain within your arranged limit and make regular deposits. Pay interest, determined after a personalised assessment, on what you use and not on the total arrangement. Interest is calculated daily and charged monthly.
Talk to a Relationship Manager about what you need to access an overdraft and let’s see what we can work out to support your business success.
Capital is capability.
Capability is possibility.
A commercial loan is a medium-term working capital facility used to finance your immediate working capital needs.
With a maximum repayment period of 60 months, instalments are payable monthly in arrears. Calculated daily and charged monthly, interest rates are linked to our prime lending rate and dependent on your personal assessment.

The complete cost of a property acquisition:
It’s important to be aware of the holistic costs involved in any property acquisition, both residential and commercial.
If your business only qualifies for a percentage of the required loan, you’ll need to provide a deposit. Interest may be earned on the deposit (if it is kept by an attorney in a trust) until the property is transferred into your name. A deposit is equity that you introduce and this amount is stated in the Offer to Purchase.
Includes “transfer duty” payable to the receiver of revenue, as well as a “deeds office fee” and “administrative fee” payable to the transferring attorney. Be aware that transfer duty is not to be paid if the transaction involves a VAT registered party. The deeds and admin fee are however payable on a VAT transaction.
Property Registration Costs
This fee is payable by you (the purchaser of a property) to a conveyancer (also called a transferring attorney) attending to the registration of a bond over the property in favour of the bank. This fee consists of stamp duty and VAT (as prescribed by law), registration costs (also called conveyancing fees) payable to the transferring (conveyancing) attorney for services rendered as well as bond costs payable to the Deeds Office for the registration of the bond amount.
Valuation Assessment Fee
A bank appointed panel of assessors will carry out a valuation and this fee is charged by and is payable to the assessor.
