On Monday 9 August 2021, the Australian Government and Government of South Australia announced a new $3,000 cash grant program for businesses and $1,000 for sole traders in eligible industry sectors - such as hospitality, creative venues and artists, tourism, gyms and transport.

South Australian businesses that continue to be significantly impacted by ongoing COVID-19 density and trading restrictions may be eligible for additional financial support. Businesses based in the Adelaide CBD may be eligible for an additional $1,000, acknowledging the significant decrease in city foot traffic.



The program, funded 50:50 by the Commonwealth and State Government, will offer:

  • $1,000 grants for non-employing businesses
  • $3,000 grants for employing businesses with turnover less than $2 million
  • $10,000 grants for employing businesses with turnover greater than $2 million
  • $20,000 grants for employing businesses with turnover greater than $5 million.

The State Government says the $3,000 and $1,000 grants will be paid out automatically to those businesses which received support from the COVID-19 Additional Business Support Grant in August.

Applications close at 11:59pm on 17 October 2021. For further information please refer to the link below.

    Important Superannuation Changes for Employers From 1 November 2021, if you have new employees starting in your business, you may have an extra step to take to comply with choice of fund rules if the employee does not choose a super fund. You will now need to request the employee’s ‘stapled super fund’ details from the Australian Tax Office (ATO). A stapled super fund is an existing super account which is linked, or 'stapled', to an individual employee so that it follows them as they change jobs. These new changes aim to reduce account fees by stopping new super accounts being opened every time an employee starts a new job.

First introduced in August 2018, the program has undergone a review, with the funding categories revised in a bid to give a greater pool of small to medium sized businesses access to the grants. New activities within the funding stream have been introduced to support exporters that are seeking entry to new markets. Due to changes in the criteria, companies that were once unable to apply may find that they can now access funding.

To be eligible, businesses applying must be from one of the nine Growth State priority sectors, which are:

    Employers should be aware of some key changes to superannuation laws that will impact the calculation of employee superannuation entitlements. Superannuation Guarantee Rate Increase to 10% Employers in Australia are required by law to make regular contributions to their employee’s superannuation fund. The legislated Superannuation Guarantee (SG) rate is currently set at 9.5% of ordinary time earnings. The first increase to the SG rate will occur on 1 July 2021 and will see the contribution rate that employers are required to pay increase from 9.5% to 10%. This will then be followed by incremental half percentage point (0.5%) increases each year until the rate reaches 12 per cent on 1 July 2025.
