The NSW Government has announced an economic support package aimed at helping businesses affected by the current COVID-19 lockdown.

Key features of the package include:

  • The business grants program announced two weeks ago has been expanded, with grants between $7500 and $15,000 soon to be available to eligible businesses with annual wages up to $10 million.
  • A new grant program has been announced for smaller micro businesses with turnover between $30,000 and $75,000.
  • A new business and employee support program will be delivered together with the Commonwealth to provide cashflow support to businesses to help them retain staff.
  • Businesses will benefit from payroll tax waivers of 25 per cent for businesses with Australian wages of between $1.2 million and $10 million that have experienced a 30 per cent decline in turnover.
  • Commercial, retail and residential landlords liable for land tax will be eligible for a land tax concession where they reduce the rent of their tenant.
