Helping Australian businesses get ahead
Skippr was founded in 2015 with the goal of helping Australian businesses not only access the finance they need but to help them better understand and manage their cash flow.
Supporting Australian businesses with what can be the most stressful part of running a business – managing cash flow – is core to Skippr’s DNA and we strive to be the most supportive lender in Australia.
Skippr was early to recognise the power of the cloud in helping businesses be more efficient and productive. We seamlessly integrate with the major cloud accounting software providers to offer an easy to use line of credit that makes bookkeeping a breeze.
Skippr continues to help businesses in media, marketing, food & beverage, recruitment, wholesaling and other industries.
