If you’re a micro-business (small business, sole trader or not-for-profit organisation with aggregated annual turnover between $30,000 and $75,000) impacted by the recent COVID-19 restrictions, you may be eligible to apply for a fortnightly payment of $1,500 to cover business expenses for the duration of the Greater Sydney lockdown.
The 2021 COVID-19 micro-business grant provides cash flow support for micro-businesses in New South Wales who have had their work impacted by the restrictions while continuing to incur business costs.
Eligible applicants can use the grant for business costs incurred from 1 June 2021 and for which no other government support is available, including:
salaries and wages
utilities and rent
financial, legal or other advice
marketing and communications
other business costs.
A qualified accountant, registered tax agent or registered BAS agent may apply for the grant on behalf of your business.
Your accountant will need to provide a letter of authority from you to show that they are authorised to act on behalf of your business if they are not listed as an associate on the Australian Business Register.
Applications will close after 11:59pm on 18 October 2021 more information HERE
