The NSW Government announced a state-wide minimum 7-day lockdown commencing at 5pm Saturday 14/08/2021. This lockdown will place significant financial pressure on many businesses. HQB is working with a mix of staff in-office & from home so we can still provide assistance to you at this time.
The below is a brief summary if you are impacted by the lockdown and require assistance.
As discussed in our newsletter published 13th August 2021, the below grant options are available to NSW businesses effected by Covid. HQB can now lodge Grant applications with Service NSW on your behalf.
As government support is limited; and we are seeing delays in payments due to the volume of grant applications, we suggest contacting your lender should you require urgent financial assistance.
Residential Rent Relief
Commercial Rent Relief
Stand Down Provisions
As the government has made an enforceable direction to lockdown, employers can stand down employees who cannot be usefully employed.
Before standing down an employee, you should consider the following:
Payroll Tax Relief
As the sun sets, the primary goal is to ensure businesses can survive through any immediate financial crisis brought on by the lockdown, until the Government support packages are paid.
Please contact us for assistance.
