Victorian COVID-19 stimulus measures

April 20, 2020

Members will be aware of the Commonwealth government measures, such as JobKeeper, which are intended to help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are also however a number of measures introduced by the Victorian government that may be of assistance to members. These include payroll tax relief, land tax relief and grants for small businesses. Read more information on these measures.

In addition, the Victorian government has released information about rental relief for both commercial and residential tenancies. The relief includes a six month moratorium on evictions (with some exceptions) and rent increases. There is also some land tax relief for landlords and grants available when reduced rent is negotiated between a landlord and tenant. Read more information about rent relief on the HIA COVID-19 website.
