A huge thank you to our local business community & special guests for joining our Online Business Covid-19 Support Forum in July 2021. We had lots of questions raised both on the call, and prior to, which was understandable given the lengthy lockdown and the pressure that comes with that, particularly for small business.

Mosman Chamber remains very appreciative of the time given to us by our special guests:

Minister for Finance & Small Business - The Hon. Damien Tudehope

NSW Small Business Commissioner - Chris Lamont

Federal Member for Warringah - Zali Steggall

Member for North Shore - Felicity Wilson MP

Mayor of Mosman - Carolyn Corrigan

General Manager of Mosman Council - Dominic Johnson

The biggest issues raised during the Forum were : -

Commercial leases - clear guidelines urgently needed as some landlords not sharing relief

Job Keeper - request it be reinstated as it kept important link between employer & employee, was more generous, much simpler

PAYG waiver - request it be reinstated, life saver in 2020 lockdown. Deferrals on offer only delay cash flow issues, they don't solve them

Service NSW Business Concierge is in high demand & hard to get through so it’s recommended to request a call back. This in itself can take a while but is still the fastest option.

Eligibility for new businesses (2020 & 2021) & sole traders - may still be eligible but will need to be assessed manually. To access a “Manual Assessment’’ businesses should arrange a call-back from the Business Concierge team at https://mybusiness.service.nsw.gov.au....

Help for business is through NSW Govt - www.Service.nsw.gov.au

Help for individuals is through Federal Govt - www.servicesaustralia.gov.au
