Whether you’re a small business, independent contractor or a start-up, government grants are a first port of call in getting off to a flying start and businesses with fleet operations may take advantage of them.
Grants, funding and support programs are widely available from both federal and state governments in Australia. They are designed to help businesses during various phases of their business life cycle. From getting a business off-the-ground to growing and expanding, government funding for small businesses can have an enormous effect on the future of a business.
Typically, new business grants come in the form of cash deposits, or incentive payments and the great thing is, the programs are not always restricted to a particular industry or sector. So if your business relies on fleet operations and drivers, you can certainly apply.
When applying for funding, it’s good to keep in mind that you’ll generally need to meet certain criteria to be eligible. The key to obtaining these grants is knowing when funding is going to be allocated, and promptly submitting your applications.
