The company had 1200 employees before the ban in August 2018 and was set to hire more as it was chasing 5G business from all Australia's major carriers.
At the moment, iTWire understands that Huawei has only 200 local employees and even that number is set to decrease in 2021.
Huawei's main business in Australia has been in its Carrier Network division and it had to get rid of staff from this group due to the lack of any 5G work.
What remains is a smaller carrier network team, the Enterprise and Consumer teams and administration staff.
In March, a report said the company was set to shed about 500 jobs, including its board and chairman John Lord.
Also in March, the company was forced to abandon a $136 million deal with the Western Australian Government to build and maintain digital radio services that would provide voice and data services across the rail network in Perth.
That deal was to have been completed next year.
At the end of August, Huawei said it was ending its role as a major sponsor for the Canberra Raiders rugby league team after a decade.
