It has now been over a year since COVID-19 started to dramatically affect the Australian economy and all Federal State and Territory governments have now put in place assistance programs with varying eligibility criteria and application dates. These programs change regularly and you should bookmark both the Federal and state assistance pages and regularly check if there is a program that can assist your small business.
If you are looking for wage assistance then the Federal government has recently expanded and uncapped the Boosting Apprenticeship / Trainee Commencement Program
Up to $32,000 potentially available to assist your small business to employ a trainee call. Visit our Traineeship Opportunities page and fill in the form. A team member from one of our partner companies, The Institute of Advanced Business, will make contact to explain how your small business may benefit from this program
