Visitation Reliant Small Business Support Application

* indicates a required field.

The purpose of the Visitation Reliant Small Business Support Program (‘Program’) is to support small businesses operating in a range of tourism and hospitality related sectors that have been impacted due to restrictions on travel put in place by interstate governments and the subsequent drop in visitation to the Northern Territory.

The Program is available for a number of sectors of the tourism and hospitality market that have been impacted.

BEFORE YOU START: you must read and agree to the Program Terms and Conditions in full. Note in particular:

In order to participate in the Program a business must meet the definition of an Eligible Recipient. An Eligible Recipient may only apply once for a grant regardless of the number of premises from which it operates.

Eligible Sector/s include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Wholesale and retail trade
  • Provision of accommodation and/or food services
  • Transport, postal, warehousing and/ or storage of stock in trade
  • Education and training
  • Provision of arts and/ or recreational services

An Eligible Recipient:

  1. is a Territory Enterprise that operates solely in one or more Eligible Sector/s; and
  2. held a valid Australian Business Number (ABN) and was registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST) as at 1 July 2019; and
  3. is actively trading with an annual Turnover of more than $75,000 and less than $10 million; and
  4. has had to temporarily cease or significantly reduce trading (ie. suffers a drop of 30% or more in turnover from 1-31 July 2021 as compared to the same period in 2019) as a direct result of the downturn in visitor numbers to the Northern Territory (whether because of government imposed restrictions or not); and
  5. does not have an outstanding debt due and payable to Tourism NT or the Northern Territory Government.

To be an Eligible Recipient a not-for-profit organisation must be validly incorporated under Northern Territory or Commonwealth legislation and must be fully compliant with all its statutory obligations.

The Department will decide in its absolute discretion whether an applicant is an Eligible Recipient.

A Territory Enterprise is a business that satisfies all of the following:

  • has a significant permanent presence - the enterprise maintains an office, manufacturing facilities or other permanent base within the Northern Territory; and
