I have to applaud the NSW Government during COVID-19, this year has been tough for so many both personally and professionally.
Recently the NSW Government announced it’s $1 billion Working for NSW Fund, which will help sustain businesses and create much needed cash flow and help businesses retain employees across government and non-government businesses.
They also announced that over $6 billion, that’s right $6 billion dollars will go towards waiving or deferring taxes, levies and fees, which includes payroll tax and licensing and registration fees to support businesses.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on certain industries in NSW, the Government announced assistance for the following
$50million for arts rescue and restart, $27.3 million for sports and $11.6 million to support the taxi industry.
That is an incredible amount of money and the Government has advised the will also extend funding of $39.3 million for the Business Connect Program, which assist businesses in need of advice with those facing the multitude of challenges of COVID-19.
Let’s face it, the NSW Government are trying to serve and support local and small business, because as we know, we are the backbone of the country. If you didn’t have the local and small business, NSW / Australia wouldn’t function, pure and simple.
I support the NSW Government as they hand down the budget and we all know the future is uncertain, but this will definitely help many for a more positive 2021.
