Support for bushfire affected businesses
Bushfire Small Business Disruption Grants of up to $2,000 are now available for small businesses that have experienced a significant disruption to their business as a result of the recent bushfire.
Small businesses affected by the fires in the Huon Valley, Central Highlands, West Coast, and Derwent Valley areas with under 20 staff are eligible to receive the grants to help cover bills and immediate operating cost stresses being felt due to the downturn in trading.
Bushfire Business Recovery Grants of up to $25,000 each will also soon be available for small to medium sized enterprises to help cover demonstrated irrecoverable losses and Concessional Business Recovery Loans of up to $100,000 each will shortly be available to assist businesses re-establish after being directly impacted by the bushfires.
Guidelines and application information on the Bushfire Small Business Disruption Grant are available at www.business.tas.gov.au. Businesses requiring further advice or assistance on this program can also contact Business Tasmania on 1800 440 026.
The Bushfire Business Disruption Grant is jointly funded by the Australian and Tasmanian Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
