Business Australia, an organisation that has been advising Australian businesses for more than 190 years, has created a dedicated hub for Australian business owners to keep up with the latest news and information on Coronavirus (COVID-19).

1. Coronavirus FAQ’s

It answers questions on government assistance and hardship, workplace health and safety, cashflow advice, commercial property leases disruption to essential services, and getting your business online.

It also answers employer questions related to Fair Work Act amendments, employee standdown and redundancy, employee leave and ay, apprentices and trainees, and remote working.

2. Free Coronavirus resources for businesses

Free resources and services are available to support businesses including a free English speaking phone service for Government Stimulus and Financial advice.

It also includes the most relevant services to help businesses navigate this difficult time.

3. Is your business struggling to pay the rent?

The guide gives advice on dealing and protecting your business from landlords including lease termination, being locked out from premises, and what to do if your landlord is unreasonable.

To help guide the small business owner through this difficult time, you can download free template letters including how to request a temporary rent holiday, reduction or payment plan from your landlord. 

4. What to do while waiting for the Jobkeeper Payment

The Federal Government recently announced the JobKeeper payment plan as part of an unprecedented $130 billion stimulus package. The subsidy is aimed at helping businesses keep their employees and be able to quickly re-start once the COVID-19 health crisis is over.

The wage subsidy will last for six months with the first payment due to be paid in the first week of May.

While waiting, you can browse through a list of over 1500 Business Grants and how to save money on your energy bill.

5. Coronavirus official government language and telephone advice line

If you want to know COVID-19-related glossary of words, Business Australia has compiled a list of official government words and language to help you understand the impact of Coronavirus on your business and employees. 

Detailed information on the above is available in Filipino language.
