Applying for a Queensland Government business grant

Hey, there small business owners. Are you looking to take your business to the next level?

You might be eligible for a Queensland Government business grant, but applying for a grant can be a bit intimidating, right? Don't worry, we're here to help you navigate the process.

First things first. To apply for a grant, you may need to register for an account on an online grants management program. It's easy. Just fill in the required fields and you're good to go.

Next, it's very important you read the guidelines thoroughly. This will give you a clear understanding of the eligibility criteria, which can include being registered for GST, having an active Australian business number with a main business location in Queensland, not having been approved for funding under the same grant program, and not having insolvent or bankrupt owners or directors.

There may be other requirements around turnover, years of trading and employee headcount, and you'll need to maintain your eligibility for the duration of the grant.

It's also important to read the terms and conditions carefully to understand the legal requirements of the grant. And if you have any questions about eligibility, check out the frequently asked questions which can help you navigate some of the more complex parts.

For some grants, you may need to complete a registration of interest or expression of interest. These are generally short online forms that can be completed quickly and do not require detailed information.

Successful applicants from the registration of interest or expression of interest stage are then advised whether they have progressed through to lodging a full application. The full application form may require additional information, such as a statutory declaration, letter from an accountant and proof of your identity.

Be sure to check the guidelines and terms and conditions for specific requirements for each grant.

So there you have it.
