Use vouchers with local businesses, Tesch urges

Local residents should use their Dine and Discover vouchers with local businesses, according to Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

"We have loads of great local businesses who have quickly transitioned to offer many delicious menu options to take away in a Covid-safe way," she said.

The Dine and Discover program had been extended to August 31.

"Dine and Discover will now also be available to use for takeaways delivered to your home, although third party delivery services are not included," Ms Tesch said.

"Let's use this initiative to invigorate our local economy.

"For many local businesses the current lockdown feels a lot like last year's, losing huge amounts of income, which is only added given school holidays is one of the busiest times of the year.

"To ease the blow to their pockets, we can ensure we are pumping our vouchers back into our community and using this time working from home to pick up our coffees locally too."

Ms Tesch a small business support package had been announced which included grants of between $5000 to $10,000 for small businesses depending on the percentage of loss incurred during the restrictions.

"For those who see a 30 per cent decline $5000 will be provided, while those with a 50 per cent decline will be given $7000 and a 70 per cent decline will be handed $10,000 to ease the loss.

"To be eligible the business must have a turnover of over $75,000 per annum and below the tax threshold of $1.2 million for the previous tax period."

Ms Tesch says local businesses should apply as soon as possible.

"These grants can be applied for through Service NSW and I encourage all small businesses who are eligible to apply as soon as possible."
