COVID-19 Assistance for Registered Businesses

At a Special Council Meeting on 8 July 2020, Council resolved to refund 50% of the total registration fees of South Gippsland businesses* for the 2020 registration period (1 January – 31 December 2020).

Businesses have the option to have the refund deposited directly into a nominated bank account or to receive the refund as a credit note on their registration account (to be deducted from their 2021 renewal fee).

Registered businesses will need to complete a short form and return it to Council nominating their preferred option. A letter and form will be sent out on Friday 10 July. Refunds will be processed within two to three weeks upon receipt of a completed form.

Businesses with questions related to the refunds should contact Council on 5662 9200 for further information.

A refund of 50% of the total renewal fees paid under the provisions of the Food Act 1984 (“Food Act”) and the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (“PH&W Act”) for the 2020 registration period will be granted upon completion of the required form. (NB – the total renewal fees include any temporary/mobile food activities attached to the parent registration).
