As part of the package additional support for businesses that have had a decline in turnover of more than 30 per cent will include:

  • Payroll-based support for all businesses across Queensland, that have had a decline in turnover of more than 30 per cent.
    • A $5,000 one-off, top-up grant to small business with payroll of less than $1.3 million
