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.

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.
