2020 COVID-19 RELIEF MEASURES by DBS

Published on 3 Mar 2020

SMEs are the backbone of Singapore’s economy, and in this difficult time, we understand that cash flow requirements are your top priority. To counter this, DBS is introducing a number of short-term liquidity reduction strategies as well as other business loans programs to help businesses cope – so that you can concentrate on doing what is right for your company, your workers and your loved ones. Together, we can overcome this challenging period.
With DBS Covid-19 Relief measures and Support, you can have

1. Six-month principal moratorium for property loans
Customers with existing secured mortgage loans impacted by the COVID-19 situation would only have to pay interest on the loan for the next six months upon effect.

2. Extension of import facilities of up to 60 days
This will serve as immediate cash flow assistance for consumers experiencing supply chain delays. Customers with existing Letters of Credit and Trust Receipts will be notified of the interest payable on the initial due date, and the interest and principal payable on the extended due date.

3. Export Trade Fee Rebate
Consumers using our Export Trade Services get help to defray operating costs through fee rebates on Letter of Credit (LC) advising as well as on courier services for delivering export documents to us.
