Business Support Package

Grants to support business. Expansion of the Business Support Fund

Grants to support business 

The Government has announced an expansion of the Business Support fund. 

Renewed restrictions throughout Victoria means businesses may be eligible for a $5,000 grant where they have to operate in a limited capacity or can no longer operate.

One-off grants will be made available to qualifying businesses.

  • $10,000 for employing businesses in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire in recognition of spending longer under restrictions
  • $5,000 for employing businesses in regional local government areas (except Mitchell Shire)
  • If you put in an application in the first round of grant funding which closed on 1st June 2020 then you will still need to put in an application for this second round of grant funding.

Applications for the program close 14th September 2020.

To apply for the grant click here.

  • You won’t be required to reapply if you were a Melbourne based business that had already applied for the second round of grants which opened at the end of July 2020.

Updated guidelines will be available soon, so please keep an eye on the Business Victoria website and to apply for the grant click here. 

If you have any queries, please email: or contact your Accountant directly via email and we will be in touch.
