The Small Business Jobs Bonus

The Small Business Jobs Bonus is a Tasmanian Government initiative that supports Tasmanian small businesses to create jobs for new employees.

The Bonus provides grants to eligible Tasmanian small businesses of $1 000 for each new full time job and $500 for each new part time job created in the 2014-15 financial year. 

The Bonus will be paid in two equal instalments, the first after the job has been filled for six months, and the second instalment after the job has been filled for 12 months.

Applications can be submitted at any time after the job has been filled for six months and must be submitted before 12 February 2016.

Further information about eligibility and how to apply is available in the Small Business Jobs Bonus Guidelines (PDF) or by contacting Business Tasmania.
