Local businesses in the Hilltops Council local government area are being encouraged to apply for a rebate of up to $1500.
Businesses in the region that are either a sole trader, the owner of a small business or a not-for-profit organisation in NSW, are able to apply and may be eligible for a small business fees and charges rebate.
This rebate helps businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and encourages growth by reducing the cost of running a business.
Eligible businesses or not-for-profits only need to apply for the rebate once, but can submit multiple claims until the full value of $1500 is reached.
Funds can be used to offset the costs of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges. These include, but are not limited to:
- food authority licences
- liquor licences
- tradesperson licences
- event fees
- outdoor seating fees
- council rates
