Bushfire grants and support

January 21, 2020

There are a range of grants, allowances, payments and support options available to individuals and businesses impacted by the fires, and it can be overwhelming navigating through them all.

The NSW Government has small business support packages and their website is a good place to start. Telstra has also announced assistance packages, and is also picking up the bill for fire-fighters. The Australian Taxation Office is also providing lodgement and payment relief including fast-tracking refund payments, setting up payment plans for tax and remitting penalties or interest charged during the time you’re affected. The ATO also has an Emergency Support Infoline 1800 806 218.

We encourage you to get in touch with your Kothes Accountant and we can help you access these support packages – phone 6491 6491.
