There is less than a month to finalise your application for a $3K rebate for each business from the NSW government.  This needs to be done by the 24th of this month or you’ll miss out.

This is for expenses paid from 1 March 2021 and is cumulative.  So you don’t have to wait for $3K to apply and can make as many applications as long as the aggregate will cut it out at $3K.

You will need copies of invoices for each business (company, trading trust, sole trader) to get you to the $3K.

It is the same portal that was used for the NSW JobSaver and other NSW grants, so needs to be done by a director/business owner.

Funds can be used to offset the costs of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges due and paid from 1 March 2021. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Vehicle registrations
  • food authority licences
  • liquor licences
  • tradesperson licences
  • event fees
  • outdoor seating fees
  • council rates
  • road user tolls for business use
  • 50% of RAT (rapid antigen tests) purchased through the business for business use.

View the full list of eligible fees and charges.  Basically anything you pay to governments from state down – not federal.
