Small Business Covid Hardship Fund Grant


The Victorian Government’s Small Business COVID Hardship Fund Grant is aimed at small and medium business:

  • Whose operations have been severely impacted by COVID-19 restrictions that have been in place between 27 May 2021 and August 2021
  • That have experienced at least a 70% reduction in turnover as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions
  • That are ineligible for other key COVID-19 Victorian Government business grant programs that have been announced since 27 May 2021.

Businesses must show a decline in turnover over a two week consecutive period from 27 May, 2021 when compared to the exact same period in 2019.

Businesses must be registered for GST and have employees.

We urge those businesses, who have not received any assistance in the last three months and believe they have a 70% downturn in a two week period to get into contact with our office.

Please have ready your selected two week period for your accountant. Alternatively, we can review your software file for a fee of $220 (on top of the fee for completing the application), if you cannot do this yourself.

Please make contact with our office should you wish for us to apply for this grant or you can apply for it yourself, but you must do so by 10 September 2021.
