Generally, your borrowing capacity will be expressed as an interest cover multiple. Interest cover equals your net income before tax and depreciation divided into interest expense.
A fully secured loan such as a commercial property loan restricted to a maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 65 per cent may be based on an interest cover multiple of 1.25 -1.5 times.
A business loan secured by cash flow and/or partly secured by property may need an interest cover of three times or more.
