This evening the Victorian Government finally announced the eligibility criteria for the latest business grant. This is to help with the most recent lockdown in May–June 2021.


Eligible businesses with an annual payroll of up to $10 million can receive grants of either $2.5K or $5K.

To be eligible, businesses must:

• be located within Victoria

• hold an ABN and have held that ABN at 27 May 2021
• be registered with the responsible Federal or State regulator
• be registered with WorkSafe Victoria
• attest that the business is supporting its workers to access any paid leave entitlements, or that if a person can work from home, to work from home during the circuit breaker action, and supporting their casual workers, where possible.

 

How much could I receive?

• businesses that are subject to restrictions for the full length of this lockdown will be eligible for funding of $5K
 
• businesses that were subject to restrictions for only the first week of this lockdown (28 May–3 June) will be eligible for funding of $2.5K
