  • hold a valid Australian business number (ABN)
  • have been registered for goods and services tax (GST) as at 1 July 2019
  • be actively trading with an annual turnover of more than $75,000 and less than $10 million
  • have had to temporarily cease or significantly reduce trading (i.e. suffered a drop of 30% or more in turnover from 1 to 31 July 2021 as compared to the same period in 2019) as a direct result of the downturn in visitor numbers to the NT (whether because of government imposed restrictions or not)
  • not have an outstanding debt due and payable to the NT government.
