Supporting Australian businesses

The Australian Government has announced a JobKeeper assistance payment to help keep more Australians in jobs. As part of the initiative, some businesses impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19) will be able to continue paying their employees by accessing the wage subsidy from the government. This supports businesses and allows employees to keep being paid.

Who is entitled to the JobKeeper assistance payment?

The Government JobKeeper assistance payment enables eligible employers to be able to pay the salary or wages of their eligible employees.

In order to claim the JobKeeper assistance payment, employers will need to pay all eligible employees a minimum of $1,500 (before tax) per fortnight. This will be paid to the employer in arrears each month by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

This payment is open to:

  • eligible employees
  • sole traders
  • some other entities.

The first assistance payments for eligible employees will commence in the first week of May 2020, however you can claim for payments to be backdated from 30 March 2020.

For details of JobKeeper eligibility criteria and how to apply, please visit the ATO website. You should consider seeking independent advice about your eligibility.

Temporary financial assistance

The first JobKeeper assistance payments for eligible employees will commence in the first week of May, 2020. However, we understand that some businesses will require immediate financing to help manage their short term cashflow.

To support our business customers during this difficult time, NAB can help customers access temporary finance options ahead of the JobKeeper assistance payment being received. To enquire about temporary financial support, please fill in our NAB JobKeeper assistance form.

NAB JobKeeper assistance is available to existing NAB customers with a business transaction account and NAB eligibility criteria applies.1

Any temporary finance provided must be repaid within 30 days. Interest will be charged and payable:

  • if the customer has an existing overdraft facility linked to their business transaction account, interest will be charged in accordance with the customer’s overdraft facility terms and conditions.
  • if the customer does not have an existing overdraft facility, then overdrawn debit interest will be charged in accordance with the customer’s business transaction account terms and conditions.
