COVID-19 support for Territory businesses and workers
A fourth round of the immediate one-off payments is now available for businesses affected by the current lockdown.
As part of the Territory Business Lockdown Payment, businesses who have had to cease trading or have suffered a revenue loss of 50% are eligible for an immediate payment of $1,000.
Eligible small businesses are those who are actively trading with a turnover of $75,000 to $10 million and less than 20 full-time equivalent staff. The payment will help cover ongoing costs, and provide support over the lockdown period.

In addition the Australian Government COVID-19 Disaster Payment is also available for Territorians impacted by the current lockdown.
Territorians who lost at least eight hours and less than 20 hours of work may be eligible for a payment of $450. This may also apply to Territorians who haven’t been able to work a full-day this week.
Territorians who lost 20 hours or more of work for the week may be eligible for a $750 payment.
