Job Accelerator Grant

The State Government is supporting businesses to grow and employ more South Australians.  They have introduced a range of measures that make it easier for businesses to employ new staff – including the Job Accelerator Grant.

The $109 million Job Accelerator Grant Scheme provides incentives for our business community to employ more South Australians.  This scheme will provide:

  • a $10,000 grant for each additional person hired between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2018 and maintained for two years (for businesses with an annual payroll of between $600,000 and $5 million)
  • a $4,000 grant for start-up and smaller businesses not liable for payroll tax (below $600,000 annual payroll) for each additional person hired over the same period.

It is estimated that the grants will be provided for creation of a total of 14,000 full-time equivalent positions.
