Small businesses, claim your rebate

If you are a sole trader, the owner of a small business or a not-for-profit organisation in NSW, you may be eligible for a small business fees and charges rebate of $1500.

This rebate helps businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and encourages growth by reducing the cost of running a business.

Eligible businesses or not-for-profits only need to apply for the rebate once, but can submit multiple claims until the full value of $1500 is reached.

Funds can be used to offset the costs of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges. These include, but are not limited to:

  • food authority licences
  • liquor licences
  • tradesperson licences
  • event fees
  • outdoor seating fees
  • council rates.

But you need to act quickly, as the rebate is available until June 30.

The rebate is available to small businesses under the payroll tax threshold of $1.2 million, but registered for goods and services tax.

Weddin Shire Council Economic Development Officer Auburn Carr is urging local businesses to apply for the rebate.
