Victorian restrictions to continue and Business Costs Assistance Program

June 3, 2021

The Acting Premier has announced that the Victorian restrictions will continue for a further seven days for Greater Melbourne with an easing of restrictions for regional areas.  The authorised work categories remain the same and it is important to understand the exceptions. If you can work from home, you must work from home. Read the guidance on how the restrictions apply.

Round Two of the Business Costs Assistance Program provides $5000 grants for eligible employing and non-employing Melbourne businesses in sectors most impacted and $2500 to eligible businesses from regional Victoria. Licensed venues will be eligible for an additional support program – Business Victoria will be emailing such venues directly with a link to the application form. Both programs will open for applications on Thursday 3 June 2021 for three weeks.
