The South Australian Government has announced the eligibility criteria for its Tourism, Hospitality and Gym Grant will be extended to include newer businesses that began operating after December 2020.
Under the revised criteria, a business may be eligible if its national payroll is less than $10 million and it operates in tourism, hospitality, gyms or another sector required to operate under the one person per seven square metre density restriction.
Through the grant, applicants may receive:
- $3,000 (for employing businesses) or $1,000 (for non-employing businesses);
- Additional $1,000 for CBD businesses;
- Additional $7,000 for tourism, hospitality and other eligible businesses with turnover above $2 million;
- Additional top-up equivalent to automatic payment for businesses that did not receive the automatic payment.
The grant is automatically paid to businesses that have received a COVID-19 Tourism and Hospitality Support Grant or gym operators that received an additional COVID-19 Business Support Grant.
Other support available includes South Australia’s Business Hardship Grant, which allows employing businesses to receive $6,000 and non-employing businesses $2,000 if turnover has declined by 50 or more as a result of health trading restrictions put in place last month.
