  • Straight from the source - COVID-19 response

    We know our NFP sector is facing difficulties at this time. There are challenges finding volunteers, implementing lockdown measures and securing funds to sustain you during these times.

    Last week I shared an updateExternal Link on my LinkedIn on the help the ATO is providing to deal with the COVID-19. I thought it was timely to provide further updates on the range of support measures in place. If you need support, we will work with you to get through this difficult time.

    The following measures have been enacted to support Australian businesses affected by COVID-19:

    • cash flow assistance for employers
    • tax-free treatment of stimulus payments
    • increasing the instant asset write-off, making more businesses eligible
    • backing business investment by accelerating depreciation deductions.

    To find out more visit ato.gov.au/coronavirus.

    These measures are in addition to the administrative measures already in place. We have also listed common questions and answers to assist organisations.

    I know many NFPs are interested in the eligibility criteria for the cash flow assistance for employers. We have an article with tailored advice for NFPs.

    If you are looking for up to date advice from all government agencies, see australia.gov.auExternal Link.

    If you need support I encourage you to contact us and we can provide tailored advice specific to your circumstances. Visit ato.gov.au/coronavirus for more information.
