For Business Clients: Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate
Business clients, don’t we all love a series of small wins? If you answered yes, then we have some great news for you.
If you are a sole trader, a small business owner, or a not-for-profit organisation in NSW, you may be eligible for a ‘small business fees and charges rebate’ of $1,500.
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 $1,500 is reached. Online applications are available from Service NSW.
While an extensive list of applicable licence fees and charges is not provided, this rebate is eligible for any state government fees and charges, except those specifically excluded. Remember, this is just for state government charges, not to be confused with the federal government charges.
Excluded fees and charges include fines and penalties, NSW or Commonwealth taxes, rent on government premises, and fees and charges designed to discourage or induce behaviour changes (such as parking space levies or clean-up notices).
For the full list of exclusions, please see the scheme guidelines here.
Included are trade licences, food authority licences, council rates, and business registered motor vehicle registrations.
