SA Business Bushfire Recovery Grants
Further information on the grants can be found here
The 2019/2020 bushfire season has had a devastating effect on people and businesses in South Australia. A Small Business Bushfire Recovery Package is available to help small businesses in bushfire affected communities get back up on their feet. The package includes support for small businesses to recover and rebuild, address cash flow pressures, and access financial counselling and tax support.
The Government is establishing a hotline to provide information on the assistance that is available and access to specialist small business financial counselling services. Contact information for the hotline will be published at www.business.gov.au.
Businesses in bushfire-impacted postcodes are eligible for tax support and assistance through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Further information is available by calling the ATO Emergency Support Infoline on 1800 806 218 or at www.ato.gov.au.
If you employ people, this can be a challenging time for you and the people who work for you. Everybody’s circumstances are different, but personalised help is available. Call the National Business Hotline on 1300 142 820 for advice and support specific to your business. If part of your workforce includes an apprentice or trainee, you can contact 8429 3242 for advice about continuing to meet learning and training requirements and obligations as their employer. If you have a sponsored skilled migrant and can no longer offer employment, please contact Immigration SA on 8303 2420.
