Therefore in this offering of the SA Small Business Grants, there is also a $3,000 grant available to those businesses that did not employ anyone during the required period, however, operated from a commercial premises, this is a big win for small business.
Applications for the grants will be open from 10 November until 14 December 2020.
Payroll Tax Relief
The payroll tax relief in SA continues, with the following measures now all being in place to assist South Australian businesses:
