Counselling program for tourism businesses
The Queensland Government is delivering $2 million to support Queensland tourism businesses facing hardship with the end of the Federal Government's JobKeeper program.
This new service also includes legal and human resources advice and builds on existing state-wide government counselling assistance offered to small business in these difficult times. It will focus on micro, small and medium-size tourism businesses with up to 199 workers.
The package of counselling services provides free advice to tourism operators who need guidance on adapting their business to a changes market.
Businesses in need of expert advice also have access to a panel of appointed professional service providers plus a rebate where the government will match tourism operators on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a maximum of $2500 for each business.
Specialist counsellors will be available in Cairns, the Whitsundays, Brisbane and Gold Coast.
