Fee rebate comes at a good time

21st Apr 2021

A new rebate scheme is now available which will help tens of thousands of small businesses, sole traders, farmers and not-for-profits cover costs they pay to their local council and State Government.
The $1,500 rebate is available for small businesses with total wages below the $1.2 million payroll tax threshold, and a turnover of at least $75,000 a year.
A few examples of things that can be claimed back include, Liquor licences; Food authority licences; Council rates; and Outdoor seating fees.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said that small businesses and farmers are the backbone of country communities and this rebate is all about making it easier for people to run their businesses.
The NSW Farmers Association had commended the NSW Government on its delivery of the rebate scheme and they are urging farmers to register for the $1500 rebate.
NSW Farmers President James Jackson said primary producers should utilise schemes such as this, which are designed to bolster small businesses in the wake of the COVID-induced economic downturn.
“Farmers across the state have faced a series of setbacks, from prolonged drought and bushfires, to a global pandemic and flooding. This rebate has come at a good time for local food and fibre producers.”
The rebate will be available until 30 June 2022. To apply and for more information, visit www.service.nsw.gov.au/small-business-fees-and-charges-rebate
