  • Payroll Tax Rebate Benefits

    NSW, QLD, ACT and WA offer an exemption and/or rebate on the wages of New Entrant trainees.

    If you are paying or liable to pay Payroll Tax – this can be a significant saving amounting to thousands of dollars.

    Current details on Payroll Tax Rebates and downloadable brochures are available in the Payroll Tax section below.

  • Upskill Staff Through Traineeships

    Traineeships offer the opportunity to enrol your employee in a structured training program that will achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

    Most traineeships offer elective subject choices to allow you to tailor the program to your business needs.

  • Extra Benefits - NSW Small Business Grants for New Employees

    There are also many other extra benefits - like the NSW Small Business Grant.

    For NSW businesses who are under the Payroll Tax threshold (typically less than 20 employees) a grant applies for every extra new position created and filled. This includes if the position is for a trainee that is directly employed by your business.

    Register and claim the $2 000 grant (per extra FT employee) at OSR online.
