One of the main concerns for employers wanting to enrol for the JobKeeper Scheme is that they have to make the $1,500 payments to employees before they are eligible to receive the JobKeeper Payment. For many employers, this is simply impossible.
Yesterday, the Treasurer (Josh Frydenberg) spoke with the ‘Big 4’ banks and they have agreed to establish dedicated Hotlines for employers to call in relation to accessing bridging finance.
Those Hotline numbers are:
Westpac - 1300 731 073
NAB - 1800 562 533 (1800 JOBKEEPER)
CBA - 13 26 07
ANZ - 1800 571 123
