Are you eligible for a small business grant?

Thomas Taylor - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

To be eligible, the business needs to:

  • Have an active Australian Business Number (ABN)

In addition, the employment of the person must:

  • Fill a new job.
  • Have started after 1 July 2015 and before 1 July 2019.
  • Be maintained for 12 months.
  • Mean that the number of your NSW FTE employees prior to hiring them increases and the number is maintained over a 12-month period.
  • Mean the role is performed wholly or mainly in NSW.

The claim needs to be lodged within 60 days after the 12-month anniversary date.
