Provident Lending and Business Solutions

Trent Carter from Provident Lending and Business Solutions is reaching out to business owners in the St Stephen’s School community who may require financial advice during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specialising in cash flow advisory and funding options, Provident Solutions can discuss with business owners about what they are entitled to, how to scale a business back to survive and how business owners can pivot their business offering to look for different sources of income.

Provident Solutions are offering two specific services, and as a St Stephen’s parent, Alumni and member of the Business Directory, Trent is happy for the school community to access these services at a low price. Both sessions are offered remotely.

1. Stress test your cash flow – a 45-minute session where Provident Solutions use simple financial data to demonstrate the impact of decisions before they are made on profit and cash flow. This can be a very powerful tool to set priorities on what and when to cut expenses, especially when looking at staff. Usually $100 + GST, Provident are offering this service for $70 + GST for St Stephen’s School community members.

2. Survival sessions – a three-session advisory where Provident Solutions will:

a. Review the business up to the impact of COVID-19 to set base lines and trends. This includes the Stress Test.

b. Strategic planning – setting goals, plans and actions for the next 90 days to set up for survival and to potentially thrive in a new operating environment.

c. Cash flow budget and funding – ensuring business owners have an eye on the numbers moving forward and understand how to fund the plan.

Survival sessions are $250 each and can be run one-on-one or in groups of up to four people.

To protect our community and to be able to present the St Stephen’s School Foundation’s Gala as the full spectacle that has been planned – amid the Government’s ban of indoor events over 100 people for the time being – we have had to postpone the highly-anticipated event until later in the year.

We are excited to announce the new date for the Gala on November 7 at Crown Perth. We hope you are still able to celebrate with us. It is set to be a great evening of food, drinks, entertainment and exciting announcements. See for more.


The Federal Government today advised against any organised events with more than 500 attendees in relation to stemming the community transfer cases of Coronavirus (COVID 19). In accordance with the Government’s advice, and to protect the health and wellbeing of our School community, we have decided to postpone the Thanksgiving Service, which was planned for March 31, until further notice.

We thank you for your ongoing support of our School events and will be in touch with more information when we know it is safe to proceed.

Thank you and take care.
