Business Banking

Do you have a CEBA loan?

If you have an existing loan under the Canada Emergency Business Account program (CEBA), the deadline for repayment to qualify for partial loan forgiveness (as provided for under the terms of the CEBA program) is January 18, 2024.

If you have an outstanding balance on your loan, other than the amount available to be forgiven, as of January 19, 2024, you will no longer qualify for loan forgiveness and interest on the outstanding balance will commence at an interest rate of 5% per year. The full balance of your loan will be due on or before December 31st, 2026.

If you have any questions regarding your CEBA loan, including your current balance or making arrangements for repayment, CUA’s Commercial Team is here to help. Please reach out to your Account Manager or Small Business Advisor directly, or contact CUA’s Customer Contact Centre at or 902.492.6500.

Do you use QuickBooks?

After linking your CUA accounts to your QuickBooks profile, your recent transactions will be automatically downloaded and categorized for review, saving valuable time for your business or community organization. Service and support related to connecting your account to the platform, including uploading past transaction data, is available on the QuickBooks website or by contacting a member of the QuickBooks team.
