Commonwealth Bank statement

9 February 2012

Commonwealth Bank would like to confirm that ALL Queensland Government staff, including police, have been paid on time – and for the large majority of those who are accustomed to seeing their pay a day early they still received their payments a day early.  The remainder received their payments on pay day as per usual.

There has been no adverse impact to any customers, and we regret the level of misinformation that has emerged from various sources.

For future reference, Commonwealth Bank is committed to ensuring all payrolls are met and paid on the appointed pay day. Variations in time of day may occur for a number of reasons and so customers should be confident that they will receive their money on time unless we contact them with information to the contrary.
