As many of you are aware, right now Victorians are being faced with another COVID-19 lockdown. This is our fourth lockdown, and without job keeper or other government payments, many of our small businesses, including artists, tattooists, creators, handmade businesses and sole traders are struggling. 

The Victorian Government’s $371 million Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two was released on the 3rd of June, designed to assist eligible small to medium businesses most affected by the restrictions announced on Thursday 27 May 2021 and extended beyond Thursday 3 June 2021.

While the package itself is both generous and helpful, unfortunately it is only catered to those businesses that are registered for GST.

Many small businesses, along with sole traders, are not registered for GST because they do not earn over $75,000 a year. 

Many of these small businesses, including artists, musicians, online retail stores, tattooists, makers and creators from all over Victoria, are now left with nothing. And potentially with staff they cannot pay either. 

By signing this petition you can help me get this seen by Victorian MPs including the Minister for Small Business in Victoria.
