Member clubs are advised that applications for the NSW Government’s JobSaver Scheme are now open. Applications close at 11:59pm on 18 October 2021. Clubs may apply on the Service NSW website, here.

Financial Assistance

JobSaver is a recurring payment for eligible businesses affected by the restrictions in NSW of 40 per cent of payroll, with a minimum of $1,500 and maximum to $10,000 per week. The payment was first announced by the Australian and NSW Governments on 13 July 2021, as outlined in Circular 21-126.

For the purposes of applying the 40 per cent figure, weekly payroll is determined by reference to the most recent Business Activity Statement (BAS) provided by the club to the Australian Taxation Office prior to 26 June 2021.

Further information on how to determine the weekly payroll can be found in the JobSaver Guidelines, here.

Service NSW and Revenue NSW will distribute JobSaver on behalf of the NSW and Commonwealth Governments

Clubs May Use JobSaver Funding For:

  • Salaries and wages
  • Utilities and rent
  • Financial, legal and other advice
  • Marketing and communications
  • Perishable goods
  • Other business costs

Application Process

JobSaver is separate from the COVID-19 Business Grant, described in Circular 21-131.

Clubs may apply for both the COVID-19 Business Grant and JobSaver.
