Newsletter; Employee grant payments

The Job Accelerator Grant was announced by the State Government as a part of the 2016-2017 State Budget and commenced on 1 July 2016.  Payments are made after the first and second anniversary date of employment so first anniversary payments have been made since 1 July 2017.

There are two grants available based on total employee wages:

1) For businesses liable for payroll tax in SA with total Australian wages of $5 million or less: up to $10,000 ($5,000 each year for two years) per new job created ($15,000 for every new eligible apprentice or trainee).

2) For businesses below the payroll tax threshold (currently $600,000): up to $4,000 ($2,000 each year for two years) per new job created ($9,000 for every new eligible apprentice or trainee).

Businesses must increase their total number of employees for the new employee to be eligible for the grant (RevenueSA check that the total number of employees on the anniversary of employment is greater than the total number of employees on the day before the new employee started).

The scheme is available for jobs created up to 30 June 2018 and you must register the employee with RevenueSA within 90 days of their employment commencing: https://www.revenuesaonline.sa.gov.au/external/register.xhtml?taxline=jobAcceleratorGrant
