Overview

The Jobs Action Plan and Fresh Start Support is a key priority of the New South Wales (NSW) government. The plan provides NSW businesses with a payroll tax rebate when they employ new workers in eligible employment.

A rebate of $6000 for new jobs created after 31 July 2016 is available. The rebate is paid in 2 parts up to $2000 on the first anniversary and up to $4000 on the second anniversary.

The Fresh Start Support rebate is a one-off amount of $1000 that can be claimed at the first anniversary of an eligible employee's employment start date. The employee must have been made redundant by an employer who is a designated employer within the period of 1 January 2014 and 30 June 2015.

What are the eligibility criteria?

Employers with up to 50 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees paying payroll tax in NSW can apply.

Employment of a person is included in the rebate scheme if they meet all of the following conditions:

  • a person is full-time; part-time or casual, in a position that is a new job
  • the application for the rebate is made within 90 days of the eligible employee's start date
  • the employment is maintained for the minimum employment period
  • the services of the employee are carried out wholly or mainly in NSW.
