Transport Subsidy Emergency Drought Releif - Guidelines
The NSW RAA has published new Guidelines for the Emergency Drought Transport Subsidy. Please see these here: Transport Subsidy Emergency Drought Releif - Guidelines
One major change is the inclusion of invoices dated from 1st January 2018 into the eligibility for the current financial year $40k cap for those farmers who have not made a previous claim prior to 30th June 2019. Prior to these new Guidelines these farmers would have missed out on claiming for that period.
Note: Those farmers who have previously applied prior to 30th June 2019 will still need to get all their invoices for claims lodged by 30th September to have them included against the separate $40k cap available for the period ending 30th June 2019.
