LET'S SAVE OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES!
The small business community and families and workers of businesses on the Northern Beaches have been decimated by the lockdown.
If you are a local resident and/or a local business, be proactive, have a voice and sign up now to lobby Government for immediate relief for our business community.
Below are the basic things that will make the most difference.
We are all in this together – There is no North and South - this is a locked down Northern Beaches Community and we must act together now!
Of concern is that as the December quarter of reporting is due, businesses who would have started to recover some losses this year, will now not fall under the 30% threshold due to the beginning of their recovery which now has halted.
We call on the government to do a “drop in revenue test” for the month of December to show the true effect the lockdown has had and offer Jobkeeper to those who have been affected and offer financial assistance to assist with rent and utility bills.
Small businesses, especially those in accommodation & food services ($123M loss) , manufacturing ($71M loss), arts and recreation services ($41M loss) and rental hiring and real estate services ($41M loss) have been hardest hit in the September quarter.
Please help the business owners who cannot work due to lockdown eg: events, hire venues, the arts and more. Our top 4 industry losses are already listed.
Help save our 33,281 local businesses and our 109,144 local jobs, please sign now!
