COVID 19 has placed enormous amounts of pressure on businesses across Australia. With the recent July 2021 lockdowns occurring in South Australia, the Government has released the ‘COVID 19 Business Support Grant’ to assist effected businesses.
The Business Support Grant is to assist those businesses who have been affected by the 7-day lockdown in July, which includes a one-off payment of $3,000.00 for businesses who employ, or $1,000.00 for businesses who do not employ.
In order to be eligible for the COVID 19 Business Support Grant, businesses must be:
- In operation within South Australia,
- Experienced at least a 30% reduction in turnover in the week defined as Tuesday 20th July 2021 to Monday 26th July 2021 inclusive,
- In addition to a list of other requirements, depending on your employing status.
If you believe your business may be eligible to receive this one off payment, go to https://www.treasury.sa.gov.au/Growing-South-Australia/COVID-19/COVID-19-Business-Support-Grant-guidelines and select the guidelines that are relevant to your employing situation, to self-assess your business for eligibility.
