Financial Hardship Panel to Support
More NSW Businesses

< 1 minute to read

Businesses in NSW that do not qualify for any of the current support packages, but are experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 related public health orders, can apply for assistance through a new Hardship Review Panel.

The panel will assess applications on a case-by-case basis, considering factors such as employment levels, decline in turnover, whether a business has incurred unavoidable costs or is in a badly affected LGA. Businesses that have previously been refused assistance under available support schemes may also be eligible to apply for assistance though this program.

For more detail, please refer to the NSW Government media release or visit the Service NSW website.
