She explains why you can’t argue with banks about submitting tax returns and financial statements, delving into why it is not an invasion of privacy. On the other hand, Robin talks about loan covenants – which are negotiable – detailing how you should discuss its specifics with the bank to come up with a satisfying agreement for both parties.
