Andrew Irvine, Group Executive for NAB’s Business & Private Bank has today welcomed the announcement by governments and territories of additional support for small businesses impacted by ongoing COVID lockdowns.

 

“The impact of extended lockdowns is tough for small businesses as they face the difficult decisions of how to keep their people in jobs, how to manage

inventory and pay the bills,” Mr Irvine said.

 

“I encourage everyone to support small businesses in their local area, while keeping to the lockdown rules.  And if you can get vaccinated, please do as soon as possible – vaccination is the only path to more freedoms.

 

“For small businesses, our team are here to support you – please reach out to your banker so we can talk about how we can help keep you on your feet.”
