  • For details on eligibility please refer to Section 4 of the guidelines.

  • Applications will be assessed on a competitive basis in each stream against the following criteria:

  • Yes, you can. If eligible for the grant, you will be given conditional approval by QRIDA. This approval would be subject to you arranging your co-contribution to the equivalent amount.

  • >Jobs are to be calculated as Full Time Equivalent (FTE) Staff.

    Full time work is 35 hours per week or more. If your project will employ casual or part time workers, calculate the number of hours to be worked by these employees and divide that total by 35 to determine full time equivalents.

    For example, seven casual employees working 10 hours per week totalling 70 hours per week, equates to two full time employees.

  • Medium sized businesses applying for the grant must be registered for GST. All other applicant entities need to indicate whether or not they are registered for GST in the form.

  • No, QRIDA will pay invoice amounts for items claimed, exclusive of GST. This is because you will be able to claim the GST component of your purchases when you lodge your Business Activity Statement with the Australian Taxation Office.

  • Questions concerning your personal taxation circumstances should be directed to your taxation advisor or the Australian Taxation Office on 13 72 86.
