Project Details

A Job Accelerator Grant Scheme has been established to encourage South Australian businesses to employ additional full-time, part-time and casual employees, and maintain them for at least 12 months.

A Job Accelerator Grant of up to $10 000 ($5000 each year for two years) per new full-time equivalent (FTE) job created is available for businesses liable for payroll tax in SA with total Australian wages of $5 million or less.

A Job Accelerator Grant for Small Business & Start-ups of up to $4000 ($2000 each year for two years) per new job created is available for most businesses that are not liable for payroll tax. This includes businesses with Australian wages below the payroll tax free threshold (currently $600 000) and most organisations that are exempt from payroll tax (e.g. public benevolent institution).
