Loan Guarantees


Loan Guarantees will support fast-growing Territory businesses to expand and create new Northern Territory jobs. The guarantee will be issued in favour of lending institutions providing finance for appropriate investments such as for the expansion of production capacity or export capability development.

Key features

Loan Guarantees under the Territory’s Local Jobs Fund will be available to Territory businesses to grow the economy and create Territory jobs.

  • The Northern Territory Government will act as a guarantor for up to a maximum of 50% of the loan for amounts between $100,000 and $5 million.
