Banks are also fast-tracking efforts to streamline assessments with the ATO that confirm JobKeeper eligibility.

These efforts will help add to the $700 million worth of loans already provided to businesses to help them through the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The industry has a range of support to small businesses affected by COVID19, including six month deferrals on loans attached to the business, extending existing lines of credit and waiving fees and charges.
