As NSW is hit with financial challenges due to the extended lockdown the JobSaver financial support program for businesses has been extended until 30th November, however, the deadline for support payments is fast approaching being October 18th, 2021. If you haven’t registered yet, we urge you to do promptly.
A survey conducted by Business NSW confirmed that 53% of businesses would have come under extreme hardship and closed without this support.
While the Federal Government is looking at minimising financial support in favour of businesses concentrating on their own recovery strategies, NSW Opposition Leader Chris Minns has challenge decreased support payments stressing that businesses will need additional support in 2022. He has called for an extension of the JobSaver payroll program and a 12-month payroll tax cut extension (of 5.45 percent to 4.85 percent).
While an extension has not been confirmed, please don’t miss the opportunity for JobSaver.
Here is the link to register, and remember you only have until 18th October
