We feel passionately about supporting our small and medium business customers and that’s why we wanted to pass on some helpful information from Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business.
The Government is acting to cushion the blow from the coronavirus for businesses and households to help you get through to the other side of the crisis, as the world deals with the significant challenges posed by its spread.
The Australian Government is encouraging businesses to start thinking about how they can adjust their operations to safely operate in an environment where COVID-19 may persist at low levels within the community.
They’re asking business owners to make the appropriate arrangements now to ensure that small businesses bounce back as quickly as possible, in a COVID-19 safe manner.
These arrangements include:
Prepare comprehensive plans so employees and customers know what to expect both in undertaking daily business but also in the event of a COVID-19 related incident or outbreak
Develop workplace and business models to prevent the spread of COVID-19 which incorporate measures such as physical distancing or barriers and hygiene as appropriate depending on the nature of your business operations
Prepare plans to respond in the event of an incident involving an infected employee or customer including testing and isolation measures
Prepare plans and protocols to recover after incidents including cleaning and testing the workplace.
The government has suggested visiting the Safe Work Australia website for guidance material on operating in a COVID-19 safe manner safeworkaustralia.gov.au
Below are some quick links provided by the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business that outline the measures available to small and medium businesses, sole traders and households under the $189 billion economic support package announced by the Prime Minister:

Earlier this week, the Federal Government announced a Jobkeeper Payment to support employers retain staff during this challenging period of time.
Please see below more detail around the Jobkeeper Payment from Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business:
The Morrison Government has launched a new Jobs Hub, supporting businesses and those Australians looking for work. The Jobs Hub helps Australians looking for work find advertised vacancies.
An up to date list of a selection of businesses and organisations that are currently hiring, and how to contact them, can be found at: www.dese.gov.au/covid-19/jobs-hub
While many businesses have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and are reducing their workforces, there are some areas of the economy which have an increased demand for workers. This includes jobs in health and care sectors, transport and logistics, some areas of retail, mining and mining services, manufacturing, agriculture and government sectors, among others.
In addition, employers who are hiring and want support to connect with potential candidates can also contact the Department of Education, Skills and Employment at email@example.com to be connected directly with businesses reducing their workforces; and the employment services network to source suitable candidates.
Around one million families are set to receive free child care during the coronavirus pandemic under a plan from the Morrison Government that will help deliver hip pocket relief and help the early childhood education and care sector make it through to the other side of this crisis.
The funding will apply from 6 April 2020 based on the number of children who were in care during the fortnight leading into 2 March, whether or not they are attending services.
Child care services seeking health and situation information about COVID-19 should contact the 24/7 National Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080. Information is also available from https://www.dese.gov.au/news/coronavirus-covid-19
At www.business.gov.au there is a dedicated team of customer representatives who can help you if your business has been affected by the coronavirus. The dedicated team are available between 7.00am – 9.00pm across Australia, seven days a week.

The National Cabinet has agreed that states and territories will introduce a mandatory Code of Conduct to implement the principles agreed by National Cabinet on 3 April 2020. The purpose of the Code is to impose a set of good faith leasing principles for application to commercial tenancies (including retail, office and industrial) between owners/operators/other landlords and tenants, in circumstances where the tenant is a small-medium sized business (annual turnover of up to $50 million) and is an eligible business for the purpose of the Commonwealth Government’s JobKeeper programme.
National Cabinet also agreed that there would be a proportionality to rent reductions based on the tenant’s decline in turnover to ensure that the burden is shared between landlords and tenants. The Code provides a proportionate and measured burden share between the two parties while still allowing tenants and landlords to agree to tailored, bespoke and appropriate temporary arrangements that take account of their particular circumstances.
The Rent Relief Policy will include a mutual obligation requirement on the small and medium sized enterprises and not-for-profit tenants to continue to engage their employees through the JobKeeper initiative where eligible, and if applicable, provide rent relief to their subtenants.
