Post Lockdown Survey + New COVID Support Package


Industry Survey

Just three short questions, we’d love your suggestions!

DSSS is seeking feedback from business owners and operators, about assistance that would enable us to all accelerate out of lockdown and reinvigorate the NSW regional visitor economy.

We strongly encourage you to complete our short, three question survey. Your insights help us inform state government and ensure we represent our industry in the best possible way.

Suggestions can be industry or consumer focused, specific to our region or could be a whole of state initiative designed to drive regional visitation.

Given the time sensitive nature of this response and related activities, deadline for feedback is 9.30am TOMORROW, Wednesday 30 June 2021.

Covid-19 Support Package for NSW Businesses

The NSW Government has announced a major new grants package and changes to the Dine & Discover program to help tens of thousands of small businesses and people across NSW impacted by the current COVID-19 restrictions.

The package includes grants of between $5,000 and $10,000 for small businesses, payroll tax deferrals for all employers, an extension of the Dine & Discover program to 31 August and the ability for people to use Dine & Discover vouchers for takeaway delivered directly to their home by the venue itself. The grants will be divided into two streams:

  • Small Business COVID-19 Support Grant: available to businesses and sole traders with a turnover of more than $75,000 per annum but below the NSW Government 2020-21 payroll tax threshold of $1,200,000 as at 1 July 2020.
  • Hospitality and Tourism COVID-19 Support Grant: available to tourism or hospitality businesses that have a turnover of more than $75,000 and an annual Australian wages bill of below $10 million, as at 1 July 2020.
