COVID-19 Businesses and Individuals 2021 Support [NSW lockdown]

Whilst our COVID-19 assistance advice correspondence last year was aimed at Federal Australia wide assistance, this one is NSW and Greater Western Sydney orientated.

There is support options available to both individuals and businesses, and unfortunately not everyone will meet the criteria. Whilst we can try and assist our clients, we're seeing that this will be more based around the Centrelink and Service NSW systems, not the ATO or BAS this time, and so we won't have a direct agent login to do this on client's behalf like we were able to last time.

Below is a short summary with links to some more information on the more recent assistance released in the media. There may be other package/grants available, and we suggest that you research to see if you're eligible for any of them via Service NSW and Centrelink.

We suggest businesses begin to setup a Service NSW Business Profile account, which may require you first to setup a personal Service NSW account - if you have not done so already.

We will over the coming days/weeks become no doubt more aware of the practical steps required to assess/assist with the claims, and we will be available to help as much as we can once applications become available and more information on the eligibility criteria is released.
