COVID-19 business support

We know many businesses are facing significant financial stress as a result of COVID-19, so we’ve got initiatives including our Relief and Resilience programme and the Business Finance Guarantee Scheme to support you and your business.

COVID-19 Relief and Resilience programme

We’ve got a range of initiatives as part of our COVID-19 Relief and Resilience programme to support you and your business through these difficult times.

Eligibility

To be eligible, you must be an existing Kiwibank business banking customer who has had or will have a reduction or total loss of income due to COVID-19. Credit, lending and other criteria may apply depending on the type of help required.
