JOBS FIRST PLAN - TERRITORY SMALL BUSINESS SURVIVAL PAYMENT

 

The Small Business Survival Payment has been established to provide businesses significantly impacted by the coronavirus with funding to help them survive, adapt and prepare for the economic rebound.

Much like the immediate survival payments offered earlier this year, one-off payments of between $2,000 and $20,000 will be offered to support those businesses that have experienced considerable reductions in turnover and need some support to get through the ongoing COVID 19 impacts and the traditionally low tourist season.

The payment amount depends on the size of the impacted workforce:

  • $2,000 for sole traders with normal turnover of greater than $75,000
  • $5,000 for businesses with two to five full time equivalent employees (FTEs)
  • $10,000 for businesses with six to 19 employees (FTEs)
  • $20,000 for businesses with more than 20 employees (FTEs)

The payment will be provided as one lump sum to help eligible businesses offset immediate cost pressures.

Who can apply

  • Actively trading business with an annual turnover of at least $75,000 and less than $10 million.
  • Small businesses who can demonstrate a minimum of 50% reduction in turnover experienced in October 2020 compared to October 2019.
  • Small businesses who can provide valid evidence of workforce size and financial situation.
  • A Territory enterprise with a valid ABN that has been operating for at least 12 months prior to the date of announcement of this initiative.

Each organisation can apply only once for the program.

NAVIGATING (MOVING THROUGH) THE APPLICATION FORM

On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the application. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.

SAVING YOUR DRAFT APPLICATION

If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save and close' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any applications you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft application and start where you left off.

You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download PDF' button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form.

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION

You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top or bottom of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed and there are no validation errors.

Once you have submitted your application, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.

Hint: also check the email hasn’t landed in your spam or junk email folder.

ATTACHMENTS AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS

You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your application. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

COMPLETING AN APPLICATION IN A GROUP/TEAM

A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.
