ANZ Update

In April 2020 ANZ announced that customers whose businesses had been affected by the financial impacts of COVID-19 could request a six-month payment deferral on loan repayments for term loans, with interest capitalised.

Customers were advised of their new payment terms and when payments would fall due again. They were also given the opportunity to contact ANZ to discuss if any further assistance was required.

If your customers require further support:

  • They should talk to their accountant or financial adviser about their cash flow over the coming months
  • If they need additional help, they can contact their ANZ Banker or call 1800 956 421 (Mon - Fri, 8.30 am - 6.00 pm AEST) or request a callback.

For further information, please take a moment to read ANZ's Frequently Asked Questions.
