In response to the Corona virus pandemic, the federal government has announced a $17.6 billion economic stimulus package, equivalent to 0.9% of GDP, which includes support for businesses in Australia. The stimulus package includes a commitment from the government to:
👉 Subsidise half the wages of 117,000 apprentices in small businesses
👉 Provide one-off $750 payments to more than six million Australians to spend in our economy now (almost two and a half million pensioners will receive this support)
👉 Provide direct cash support of up to $25,000 for small and medium-sized businesses – which employ over seven million Australians – to boost their cash flow
👉 Back businesses to keep investing by increasing tax incentives to help them buy new equipment now.
