The benefits of a Business Support Loan

The NAB Business Support Loan has been designed to help our business customers whose business has been detrimentally impacted by COVID-19. This loan has the following features:

  • An unsecured business loan of up to $250,000.1
  • A variable interest rate currently 4.50% p.a.2
  • A loan term of up to 3 years.
  • No repayment is required for the first 6 months.
    • Interest will continue to accumulate on to your loan during this period.
    • Principal and interest repayments will apply after this period.
  • No application or loan service fees.

Deferring repayments

It’s important to understand that by deferring repayments in the first six months, you'll pay more interest than if repayments were not deferred. This is because when the initial six-month period ends, your loan balance will include the original loan amount, plus the interest that has accumulated during that time.

You can still make repayments in the initial six-month period. If you do, this will reduce the interest you’ll be charged.

Important Information

The NAB Business Support Loan is provided as part of the Australian Government's Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme. While the Government provides NAB with a 50% guarantee on the loan, this in no way changes a borrower's obligations to repay the loan in full by the end of term. The term of the loan cannot be greater than three years. Please note that while this loan requires no repayments for the first six months, interest will also continue to accrue over this period. The loan must be repaid with principal and interest repayments that begin after the first six months.

1The NAB Business Support Loan is available to approved NAB business customers, subject to NAB eligibility and lending criteria. Terms and conditions apply.

  • The aggregated limits of all other Australian Government Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme-backed loans, including from lenders other than NAB, cannot exceed $250,000.
