Updated Lockdown Support for Small Businesses & Individuals

Updated Lockdown Support for Small Businesses & Individuals

On 13 July 2021, the NSW and Federal Governments jointly announced a series of support measures for those impacted by extended lockdowns.

We have updated our client guides with the latest information and outlined where you can access more information on:

  • Extension and increase of the COVID-19 disaster payments for individuals
  • Expansion of the 2021 COVID-19 business grants program – up to $15,000
  • Up to $10,000 cashflow support per week for business
  • $1,500 micro business grants
  • Payroll tax deferrals and a 25% payroll tax waiver
  • Rent moratorium, protections, and grants
  • Support for the arts and accommodation business sectors

There is a lack of clear guidance at present around:

  • What is “appropriate leave” for the disaster payments for individuals
  • How the payment rate rules work for the COVID disaster payment when losing less than 20 hours of work
  • The decline in turnover tests and how staffing levels will be measured.

We will bring you further details as soon as they are released.
