Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate
The NSW State Government is supporting small businesses to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic by providing a rebate to help
with the cost of government fees and charges.
The Rebate, of up to $1,500, is available until 30 June 2022 against invoices that were due and paid from 1 March 2021. The rebate is
provided in the form of a digital credit which businesses can draw down on to offset the cost of eligible NSW and local government fees and
Small businesses, sole traders and non-profit organisations can apply to be reimbursed for NSW Government charges/fees, local council rates
and charges related to the cost of doing business such as:
- Business vehicle registration fees
There are some exclusions (such as fines, NSW and Commonwealth Government taxes). Check the Service
for more information.
Small businesses (including non-employing sole traders) and not-for-profit organisations will be eligible for the rebate if they:
- have total Australian wages below the NSW Government 2020-21 payroll tax threshold of $1.2 million

rebate is available for a single ABN.
