Your questions answered

The ANZ COVID-19 support package is aimed at helping business customers financially impacted by COVID-19 to manage their expenses through this challenging time.

If you wish to apply for the support package please contact your ANZ Relationship Manager. If you don't have a Relationship Manager, you can request a call back from a banker or call our support team on 1800 413 950 to discuss your needs in detail.

 

Please contact your Relationship Manager who will be able to assist you to apply.

If you don't have a Relationship Manager, you can request a call back from a banker or call our support team on 1800 413 950. Please note that we are experiencing high volumes of calls and are committed to helping all of our customers and will be responding to everyone as soon as we can.

 

All ANZ business customers financially impacted by COVID-19 are able to apply for the support package.

We're here to help, so contact your ANZ Relationship Manager. If you don't have a Relationship Manager, you can request a call back from a banker or call our support team on 1800 413 950 to discuss your needs in detail.

  

No specific preparation is required; you just need to answer some simple questions about how COVID-19 has impacted your business. Please have your account details available to assist with the identification process.

 

Yes, the deferral of payments is available on both interest-only and principal and interest (P&I) loans.

 

If it is appropriate for your circumstances you can choose both support package items, provided you already have an existing ANZ Business Loan and ANZ Overdraft.

 

Yes. The temporary increase in overdraft facilities as part of the COVID-19 support package is available to those that have an existing ANZ overdraft. If you do not currently have an ANZ overdraft, please speak to your Relationship Manager about applying. If you don’t have a Relationship Manager you can request a call back from a banker to discuss your needs in detail.

 

There are two rates and fees that are important when considering your overdraft.

Firstly, the interest rate that applies to your increased ANZ overdraft remains the same as that of your existing ANZ overdraft. Interest payable is calculated on the daily balance of the overdraft and charged monthly. Please note that if you take up the assistance package you will likely end up paying more interest.

Secondly, the Credit Facility Fee that applies will be based on the new/increased overdraft limit amount (calculated daily) and not the drawn amount. Please note that any increase to the facility limit will likely result in an increase to the Credit Facility Fee payable.  Further information about the Credit Facility Fees for our business overdrafts can be found here.

 

We ask that you submit separate request forms, as business and personal banking are managed by different specialist teams.

 

Please contact your Assistant Manager or email your Relationship Manager. We’re doing our very best to support you and are working around the clock to help our business customers through this challenging time. Thanks for your patience as we respond to queries.

 

Due to high call volumes, please do not call the support line if you've already submitted an online request for a call back. We will call you back as soon as possible and you will not be disadvantaged by any delay in ANZ contacting you. Thanks for your patience as we work hard to respond to our business customers in a timely manner through this challenging time.

 

  • First unplug all the wires or devices from your ANZ merchant terminal.
  • Clean the outside of the terminal using a soft cloth (slightly soaked with soapy water). Avoid excessive wiping that may cause damage to the terminal (note that cosmetic wear is not covered under warranty).

  • Avoid exposing the terminal to direct sunlight
  • Don’t clean any electrical connections
  • Don’t spray cleaners directly onto the terminal
  • Don’t use solvents, detergents, aerosol sprays or abrasive products
  • Don’t get moisture into any openings
  • Don’t put anything into the slot of the smart card reader

Important Information

Non-touch merchant terminals have plastic lenses. Don’t use alcohol cleaning solutions (isopropyl 70%) on these terminals. It’s ok to clean touch-screen glass terminals (such as the ANZ POS Move terminal) with such alcohol cleaning solutions.
