QLD STATE GOVERNMENT STEPS UP IN A HUGE WAY FOR SMALL BUSINESS.

Queensland small businesses can now apply for a up to $10,000 grant under a new $100 million package to help them counter the impact of COVID-19.

The package was announced today as part of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the new grants program had been developed to assist those small businesses forced into hibernation, to restructure or to significantly change their business operations or move online.

“Small businesses, including micro businesses, can apply for a share in the grants program to help pay for financial, legal or other professional advice, marketing and communications activities and digital or technology strategy development.

“The grants can also be used to buy specialised digital equipment or business specific software to help move the business online.

“Many events, workplaces, classes and sales have moved online and small businesses need to make sure they have the tools and resources to be competitive in these challenging times”
