2000 reasons for small business to hire new employees
THE Parliamentary Secretary for the North Coast, Chris Gulaptis, today welcomed the start of an information roadshow on the NSW Government's Small Business Grants employment incentive scheme, and encouraged small businesses in the Clarence to attend an upcoming local information sessions.
Mr Gulaptis said the $27 million scheme was part of the Government's election commitment to deliver 150,000 new Jobs to New South Wales over the next four years.
The scheme will provide eligible small businesses with a $2,000 grant for each new full-time worker they employ, and a pro-rated grant for new part-time and casual workers.
A number of free local information sessions on the scheme will be held by the OSR on the North Coast.
"The free information sessions are a great opportunity for small businesses to learn about the Small Business Grant and meet representatives from the Office of State Revenue," Mr Gulaptis said.
"The Small Business Grant scheme will provide a strong incentive for businesses to employ new workers and will encourage employers to expand their operations in NSW."

The Grafton seminar is on August 28 at the GDSC at 1pm.
