Business banking support for clients impacted by COVID-19

Helping your business through these difficult times 

We understand the importance of helping you manage your cash flow through these challenging times. Your dedicated financial specialist understands you and your business, and has the authority to customise solutions for you. We are ready to respond to general enquiries, as well as more complicated restructures.


Business banking support:

Here are a few of the ways we will continue to help you manage your practice.

Deferred loan repayments

We can help you to improve and manage your practice's cash flow by:

  • deferring your repayments for up to six months;* or
  • switching to interest only repayments for up to twelve months.  

If you're not quite ready to re-start your regular repayments after six months, you may be able to extend your deferral period by up to an additional four months. If you're already accessing our Banking Relief Package, we'll discuss this option with you when we check-in throughout your deferral period.

Account fee waivers

We are providing additional flexibility to businesses by:

  • automatically waiving monthly account keeping fees on the One Account for business for six months; and 
  • waiving merchant terminal fees for three months upon request.

Access to working capital

In line with the Government’s SME Guarantee Scheme, we can offer small businesses an unsecured overdraft facility of up to $250 000 with:

  • no repayments required for six months; and
  • an interest rate reduction of over 4.00% p.a.^
