Ready to apply for an EWCG?

Before you get started, here are some things you may need to know.

Am I eligible?

You don't need to be an existing Westpac customer, but your business can only consider an Export Working Capital Guarantee (EWCG) when:

  • You have one or more existing export contracts (or purchase orders or letters of intent)
  • The contract is for the export of goods or services and involves a benefit flowing directly or indirectly from overseas to Australia
  • The cash flow from the contract will fall into deficit during the contract performance
  • You are seeking support for working capital shortfalls when fulfilling the contract.

What information do I need?

  • Details of the existing export contract or purchase order or letters of intent
  • Current financial documents for your company
  • Further information maybe be sought by either the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC) or Westpac during the due diligence phase.

What happens after I apply?

  • Your enquiry will be forwarded to one of Westpac’s Trade Specialists who will contact you discuss next steps
  • We can also arrange an introduction to the appropriate person at EFIC.
