Whether you’re in lockdown in Victoria under the Stage 3 and 4 COVID-19 restrictions or elsewhere in the country, there is a high chance you will be impacted in some way by these restrictions and the unfolding situation.
Apart from the serious health outcomes, the coronavirus pandemic has had and continues to impacted the Australian and global economy significantly. As a major finance broker active in many lending sectors, we are staying across developments in all states as best we can. Our goal through the crisis has been to bring our customers the latest information on how measures and restrictions may affect your finance deals and loans and what support mechanisms are available to assist you as required.
The second wave of COVID-19 has hit Australia and the situation is changing on somewhat of a daily basis and with little warning. The outbreak in Victoria triggered outbreaks in other states and a re-introduction of border restrictions. Events which are having wide-ranging impacts on individuals and businesses.
Both Federal and state governments are introducing new support measures to assist businesses and individuals. Of particular note, the Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has announced amendments to the JobKeeper program to enable more businesses to take part in the program.
