Support for Bushfire Affected Small Businesses
Support for all businesses, including lost trade or disruption
Disaster Recovery Allowance Assistance is available if you can show you have experienced a loss of income or have been adversely affected as a direct result of the NSW Bushfires in August 2019 through to January 2020.

Small Business Recovery Toolkit
The NSW Small Business Commission has developed a range of resources to help small business owners recover from disasters. Visit Small Business - Disaster Recovery to access these resources. These complement the NSW Government’s Get Ready Business - five step guide to preparing for disasters (2018), which helps business owners prepare for disaster in five simple steps.
Solving Problems and Dispute Resolution Service
Access a confidential and free dispute resolution service which has been set up to help small businesses needing assistance to work through problems with other businesses or government. The NSW Small Business Commission helps parties talk about their problems and work towards a solution through negotiation and communication. We can also assist small businesses with issues in relation to insurance and regulatory concerns. Call 1300 795 534 or visit Small Business - Dispute Resolution.
A free mobile advisory service is available to small businesses through Business Connect. An advisor can meet you at a convenient place and discuss your business needs. Advice is offered about managing cash flow, planning the next steps, accessing financial support schemes and connecting to additional support. A trusted local business advisor can meet you at your business premises or another convenient location. Register at Business Connect or call 1300 134 359 to book a session with a local advisor.
