As part of the COVID recovery program, The Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate can help you with the cost of state and local government fees and charges you’ve incurred since 1 March 2021.
Eligible businesses and not-for-profits only need to apply for the rebate once, but can submit multiple claims until the full value of $1500 is reached.
The rebate can be used to offset eligible costs including licences, council rates and business vehicle registrations.
The scheme runs until 30 June 2022.
1.1 To support businesses to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and incentivise business growth by reducing the cost of running a business, the NSW Government is providing a Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate (‘the Rebate’) to help small businesses with the cost of government fees and charges.
1.2 The rebate will be available from April 2021 until 11:59pm, 30 June 2022. Businesses can claim the rebate against invoices that were due and paid from 1 March 2021.
1.3 Service NSW will deliver the Rebate on behalf of the NSW Government.
1.4 By applying for the Rebate, applicants agree that their application may be subject to an audit by the NSW Government or its representatives.
1.5 If information in the application is found to be untrue or misleading, Service NSW may seek to recover any payments. The matter may be referred to NSW Police and criminal penalties may apply.
2.1 Eligible businesses and not-for-profits can apply for a one-off Rebate to the value of $1500, which can be drawn down on multiple times until the full value of $1500 is reached.
3.1 The Rebate is provided in the form of a digital credit, which businesses can draw down on to offset the cost of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges.
