Small businesses are encouraged to sign up online for a new $1,500 rebate scheme to help cover the cost of NSW and local government fees and charges.
The Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate is open to small businesses which have a total wages bill below the new 2020-21 $1.2 million payroll tax threshold and have a turnover of at least $75,000 per year.
It is available from 1 April 2021 until 30 June 2022, for eligible fees and charges due and paid from 1 March 2021.
Fees and charges that can be claimed back through the scheme include liquor licences, food authority licences, council rates and outdoor seating fees.
The launch of the rebate scheme coincides with a number of licence waivers coming to an end. To register and view more information, including the full guidelines, visit service.nsw.gov.au
