2000 reasons for small businesses to hire new employees

The Parliamentary Secretary for the North Coast Chris Gulaptis is encouraging small business owners to take advantage of NSW Government’s Small Business Grants employment incentive scheme. A road show promoting the scheme calls into Grafton this Friday August 28 for a free session at the Grafton District Service Club at 1pm. The scheme provides eligible small businesses with a $2,000 grant for each new full-time worker they employ, and a pro-rata grant for new part-time and casual workers. For further information about the Small Business Grant or to register to attend one of the free information sessions (others are being held throughout the state and north coast), visit the NSW Office of State Revenue website at or call 1300 241 869.
