Small businesses in the Goulburn electorate are encouraged to sign up for a new $1500 rebate scheme to help cover the cost of NSW and local government fees and charges.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the Small Business Fees and Charges Rebate was designed to benefit tens of thousands of small businesses across the state as NSW continues its post-pandemic recovery.
"This will leave more money in the pockets of eligible small businesses, sole traders and non-profit organisations," Mrs Tuckerman said.
"Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and supporting them equals supporting jobs.
"Liquor licences, food authority licences, council rates and outdoor seating fees are just a few examples of the fees and charges that can be claimed back through this rebate scheme."
Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said the launch of the rebate scheme coincided with a number of licence waivers coming to an end.
"It's so important that we continue to support the small businesses of NSW," Mr Tudehope said.
"Small businesses are the backbone of their communities and we want to make it easier for them to run a business and get ahead."
The rebate will be available until 30 June, 2022.
