We support the development of local communities by providing a range of products and services to Western Australian local governments (LGs). Our Team actively promote and assist local governments in the appropriate use and effective management of debt finance and investments.
To assist Western Australian local governments in accessing loan funds efficiently, WATC have developed a Local Government Loan Application and online simulations. The online simulations provide instructions and assistance on how to complete the loan application.
Loan application form
A Loan Application Form is required to be completed for each new borrowing or refinancing of an existing loan. The form is in Excel format and will therefore need to be completed in Excel. The Loan Application Form has three main parts:
- The first part requests information directly related to the proposed loan and requires the CEO to certify that the information provided is accurate.
- The second part refers to relevant financial ratios derived from audited financial statements, adopted budget, and forecast financials at the time of the loan application.
- The third part requires the local government to add any comments or explanations if there are any variations greater than 10% from year to year.
A completed Loan Application Form and documentation supporting the information provided within the Loan Application Form is required to be forwarded to email@example.com for assessment.
Further information can be accessed from WATC’s client portal by visiting the Local Government Resources page.
Our series of informative resources are designed to assist local governments in managing their debt to improve financial, asset management and service delivery outcomes. The resources provide information relevant to local governments on interest rate markets, debt financing and debt management, and aim to support informed decision making.
If you would like to discuss any of our resources and how they relate to your specific requirements, please contact our Client Services Team.
