‘Don’t suffer in silence’: NSW businesses urged to seek support

Financial payments are available to business owners and sole traders.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has encouraged business owners to apply for COVID-19 financial support, after the state recorded a further 239 cases to 8pm yesterday, 28 July.

The Premier urged business owners and individuals not to “suffer in silence” and to seek support if they are experiencing a loss in revenue as a result of the current Greater Sydney lockdown.

The NSW Government’s COVID-19 business grants offer a one-off payment to help businesses, sole traders or not-for-profit organisations experiencing financial hardship.

Grants between $7,500 and $15,000 are available to eligible businesses and will be determined based on the decline in turnover experienced.

Smaller businesses with a turnover between $30,000 and $75,000 may be eligible for the COVID-19 micro-business grant, which offers a fortnightly payment of $1,500 to businesses with a revenue decline of 30 per cent or more.

The NSW Government is also offering a JobSaver payment to help businesses maintain employee headcount (as at 13 July) and provide cashflow support.

Eligible businesses can receive fortnightly payments of up to 40 per cent of their weekly payroll, with a minimum payment of $1,500 per week and a maximum of $10,000 per week.
