Problem 1:

I want to refinance my loan but I don’t have business activity statements (BAS) statements.

Solution A
(LVR is between 60% and 70%)

Loans up to 70% LVR are available from one major provider / funder without BAS statements or trading statements. A letter from your accountant confirming affordability is all that is required. An added bonus is that mortgage insurance is not payable with this product. Other providers also offer 70% lo doc loans but with more stringent qualifying conditions. "Cash out" is not readily available at 70% LVR. 

Solution B
(LVR is between 70% and 80%)

Other providers offer up to 80% LVR for refinances with no BAS statement requirements but rates and fees can be considerably higher than standard loans. Cash out is much hard to obtain above 70% LVR. 

Problem 2:

I want to purchase a home and I don’t have BAS statements. I need to borrow 80% of the property's value.

Loan could be through a major bank, regional bank, second tier or non bank lender with rates and fees near the best available in the market. ABN required for at least 1 year, GST registration required (however would be flexible on the time in place with some providers).

Problem 3:

I am an investor but apparently my “exposure is too high” with my current lender?
