Helping Australian businesses through COVID-19

As we continue to navigate the impacts of the global pandemic, Export Finance Australia is supporting Australian businesses with access to finance. 
Without a doubt, new challenges have emerged – from difficulty in fulfilling international orders to the loss of a steady customer base. As a result, many exporting or supply chain businesses need additional capital to help them stay on top of their cashflow – but some are unable to secure it from their bank.  

That’s where we at Export Finance Australia are stepping in.  

More than ever, our team is helping

As the Australian Government’s export credit agency, we help Australian businesses to keep operating through the current crisis. We provide finance to Australian exporters, tourism businesses and those in export supply chains. 

Through our loans, bonds, and guarantees, we enable small to medium enterprises, corporates, and governments to take on export-related opportunities.

Supporting customers remains at the heart of what we do 

We’ve helped businesses review their situation to understand the specific impacts of COVID-19 on their operations and their sector.  

We provide finance to several sectors such as manufacturing, wine, tourism, and fashion – and those selling goods and services online in a global marketplace.  

Through our tailored financial solutions, we are helping businesses remain cashflow positive.  

“We really appreciate the help from Export Finance Australia. Due to closures of the Queensland border, we’ve had to pause services for our Airport Shuttle business.

Export Finance Australia’s assistance not only helped us get through three months of hibernation but also enabled the opportunity to fine-tune and improve our capabilities.”

Ron King, Managing Director of Byron Easy Bus.

“Without Export Finance Australia, our export business would have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Their help has meant that we will be able to continue to produce and export wines to our international customers and has made our business that much more commercial. It’s wonderful.”

Franklin Tate, Proprietor & Founder of Grape Expectations Vintners.
