Pay cash or use Fitout Finance?

Using appropriately structured Finance to fitout your restaurant or cafe:

  • Spreads the cost over time
  • Preserves precious cashflow

Whilst it’s tempting to fund a fitout from cash resources, this can be a recipe for problems down the track.

The reason being, that once installed, the items are very specific to a business against which it can be difficult to obtain finance at a later date.

Fitout Finance for restaurants and cafes can encompass a wide range of items including:


Bench tops
