Local small business operators are the target of a free information session on Tuesday March 3 from 6pm at the Mansfield Library.

In partnership with Mansfield Shire Council; organisers, AgBiz Assist, who work to secure the economic and social wellbeing of people in rural and regional Australia and their communities have coordinated a range of stakeholders to attend and provide detailed information on the recovery assistance available.

Mayor, Cr Marg Attley OAM, encourages all small business operators impacted by the fires to take advantage of this free introduction session to the initial government support initiatives.

“Small Business Disaster Recovery Sessions are being delivered across the North East Region to help local businesses get back on their feet by knowing where to access initial assistance,” she said.

“There are multiple levels of Government offering support to re-establish key industries such as tourism and agriculture, this session will inform local businesses on a number of resources to start the development of a comprehensive recovery plan,” she concluded.

Speakers and stakeholders in attendance include:

•           Ag biz Assist – availability of grants and support for small business

•           CPA Australia – disaster recovery toolkit and working with your accountant

•           Department of Industry – the role of the department in recovery

•           Australian Taxation Office – tax relief measures, taxation implications on grants, donations and insurance claims.

•           Tourism North East – direct assistance available to members including digital connection (websites and social media)
