Eligible businesses (including non-employing businesses such as non-employing sole traders) and not-for-profit organisations can apply for a one-off grant of $3000 (tier one) or $5000 (tier two) via one application:
$3000 (tier one): Small businesses that have experienced a decline in turnover of at least 30% due to the Northern Beaches Public Health Order will be eligible for a grant of $3000.
$5000 (tier two): Small businesses that have experienced a decline in turnover of at least 50% due to the Northern Beaches Public Health Order will be eligible for a grant of $5000.
Eligible businesses may only receive either the $3000 (tier one) grant or the $5000 (tier two) grant, not both. Only one grant is available for a single ABN.
To be eligible for a grant, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations must:
have an Australian Business Number (ABN) that is registered in the Northern Beaches Local Government Area (LGA), or be able to demonstrate the business is physically located and primarily operating in the Northern Beaches LGA as at 1 December 2020
be non-employing or employ fewer than 20 full-time equivalent workers
have total Australian wages below the NSW Government 2020-21 payroll tax threshold of $1.2 million as at 1 July 2020
have an annual turnover of more than $75,000 as at 1 March 2020
have had unavoidable business costs during the Northern Beaches Public Health Order, for which there is no other government support available.
To be eligible for the $3000 grant, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations must also:
have experienced at least 30% decline in turnover due to the Northern Beaches Public Health Order over a minimum 2-week period from 19 December 2020 to 10 February 2021 compared to the corresponding period a year earlier.
To be eligible for the $5000 grant, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations must also:
have experienced at least 50% decline in turnover due to the Northern Beaches Public Health Order over a minimum 2-week period from 19 December 2020 to 10 February 2021 compared to the corresponding period a year earlier.
Eligible businesses may only receive the $3000 or the $5000 grant, not both.
Businesses that have received the COVID-19 small business support grant and/or the small business COVID-19 recovery grant may be eligible to apply for this grant.
If your business was not in operation a year earlier, or if your turnover a year earlier was not representative of your usual or average turnover because your business was affected by drought or bush fires, you may still be eligible for this grant.
The grant cannot be used to cover expenses for which other government support is available, such as wages for workers who are eligible for Job Keeper.
