We continue to be fully committed to supporting customers and communities
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on all aspects of life in Australia, particularly how Australians work and manage businesses. We continue to be fully committed to supporting customers and communities through this unprecedented time, implementing measures designed to provide relief from COVID-19 as restrictions change and the economic ramifications are felt. More than 20,000 of our personal and business customer accounts have accepted dedicated support to help them sustain their livelihoods through the economic impacts of COVID-19.
Through this time, we have contacted business and agribusiness customers individually to understand the impact on their operations and to help them navigate the support available both from us and the Australian Government.
