The key features of ANZ Community Select package include: * No monthly fee on the transaction package and ANZ Internet Banking for Business * No monthly Merchant Terminal/Licence fee for eligible registered charities * No annual fee and no additional cardholder fee on an ANZ Business One Visa Credit Card * Access to a small business specialist, and access to business tools, resources and free workshops via ANZ’s small business portal www.thesbhub.com.au. The launch follows ANZ’s plan to introduce an additional 130 small business specialists to its Australian branch network by early 2010, as part of its strategy to deliver more specialist banking services for small business. ANZ Group Managing Director, Commercial Banking, David Hisco says the ANZ Community Select package has been created to meet the unique needs of Not for Profit community organisations and help them reduce administrative costs. Mr Hisco says the package is available to all types of community groups and they can choose from a range of discounted transaction banking products and services. They will also have access to a specialist to help them create a banking package to suit their everyday banking needs, either in-branch or over the phone. ANZ recognises that times are challenging for Not for Profit community groups and there is increasing pressure on them to fund their activities. By providing the convenience of a tailored banking package, ANZ is providing a financial base for these groups to continue the important work they do in the community. Eastern Regions Mental Health Association (ERMHA) Inc, Chief Executive Officer, Peter Waters welcomed the new banking package and saying that increasingly, organisations need to minimise overheads and derive the best possible value from our financial management systems and products. He says this package will help ERHMA Inc. and its peers make the best use of limited resources and continue delivering the specialist mental health services that are so needed in the community.
