The NSW Government is providing $5000 business grants for hospitality businesses

The NSW Government is providing 5,000 hospitality businesses a $5,000 grant to get their outdoor dining venture off the ground, whether that be to help setup curb-side dining or a pub-style courtyard.

They NSW Government are calling it the Alfresco Restart Package at a cost of $66 million in funding. Because of all the lockdowns, this initiative will see alfresco dining, outdoor activities and events return. The Government are hoping it will revive the hospitality and entertainment industries. With 5,000 hospitality businesses a $5,000 grant to have their outdoor dining venture off the ground, will help the people of NSW get on their feet.

As a bookkeeper who specializes and helps many cafes, hospitality businesses, I am here to assist your bookkeeping when you start opening up.

‘The Alfresco Restart initiatives being rolled out from November include:

  • The Festival of Place – including the Long Summer Nights Program at the Rocks, Darling Harbour and The Domain, Streets as Shared Spaces Program, Summer Night Fund Program and Open Streets Program;
  • Emergency temporary alfresco measures for outdoor dining in parks or on private land with the owner’s consent; and
  • $5,000 grants for hospitality businesses to establish new alfresco settings;
  • Permanent outdoor dining as an exempt development for pubs and small bars state-wide.

This package is part of the NSW Government’s efforts to slash red tape and support businesses and communities to recover from the pandemic’
