CBA: Deferral for BetterBusiness Loan and Equipment Loan Repayments (up to $5m)

Summary

CBA will automatically defer BetterBusiness Loan and Equipment Loan principal and interest repayments for eligible business and community customers with total lending limits up to $5 million in April, May and June 2020. CBA will contact customers around the end of their deferral to confirm whether they need a further three-month deferral in line with the ABA loan deferral arrangements. What is available? Automatically deferring all principal and interest repayments on BetterBusiness Loan and Equipment loan repayments for a period of up to 6 months. This 6 month period includes: An automatic deferral for 3 months for all eligible CommBank customers. Before the end of the first three months, CBA will contact customers so they can opt-in for a further three months. Do I have to ‘opt-in’? For the April to June 2020 deferral: No - CBA has automatically opted-in all eligible business and community customers to have their loan repayments automatically deferred for April to June 2020. They will communicate directly with eligible customers by the end of March – there is no need to get in touch with CBA directly to arrange a 3-month deferral. For the July to September 2020 deferral: CBA will contact customers around the end of their initial deferral to let them know how they can extend their loan repayment deferral for another three months if they need to. What are the implications? During the deferral period, deferred interest and any fees will be added to the outstanding balance in accordance with the contract and capitalised over the remaining term of the facility. The total amount of interest payable will be more than it would have been under the original contract term if payments are deferred. For amortising (principal and interest) loans, CBA will extend the loan term at the end of the deferral period so that repayments are in line with what is currently being paid, regardless of any interest rate changes during the deferral period. After the end of the deferral period, interest rates and repayments may change in accordance with the contract. For interest only loans, CBA will add the deferred interest and any fees to the principal of the loan balance at the end of the deferral period. This amount won’t need to be repaid until the maturity of the loan. Interest repayments will recommence after the end of the deferral period in line with the contract. After the deferral period, CBA will reinstate the regular direct debits. They will communicate these exact arrangements with customers, including how they can continue to make loan repayments should they wish to. How do I ‘opt-out’? All eligible CommBank business customers have been opted-in to the April to June 2020 deferral. The repayment amount will be set to $0 for payments due, with any direct debits paused. If you make repayments yourself, you are no longer required to do so. CBA will communicate with customers about how they can make repayments if they do not wish to be covered by the auto-enrolment.
