Service NSW COVID-19 updates

Service NSW COVID-19 assistance updates

Further to our recent announcements, it appears that Service NSW has updated the conditions regarding the decline in turnover test for each of the COVID-19 Small Business Grant, JobSaver and the Micro-Business Grant.

Summary of latest updates

  • The comparison period used for the purpose of working out your reduction in turnover can now be either of:
    • The same period in 2019;
    • The same period in 2020;
    • The 2-week period immediately before the Greater Sydney lockdown commenced (11 June to 25 June 2021)
  • For JobSaver and the micro-business grant, the test period for the turnover comparison has been extended from 30 July to 28 August.

Applicants often require an accountant’s prepared declaration as part of the grant submission process. Allan Hall will be able to provide assistance to our clients as we have done with previous NSW grant programs, bearing in mind this new information.

This link to acceptable supporting documentation is also useful.
