Great news for travel agents, tourism and accommodation providers!
Enterprise Connect recently expanded to include the tourism sector, offering eligible travel and tourism businesses access to an extensive range of services, including a confidential Business Review delivered at no charge and the Tailored Advisory Service that helps businesses engage a consultant or coach to assist in implementing recommendations flowing from the Business Review.
After the Business Review a grant is available to eligible businesses for half the cost, up to a maximum of $20,000 (excluding GST), of engaging the consultant/s or business adviser/coach.
Tourist accommodation providers, tourist attractions, tour operators, travel agencies and businesses offering local food and beverage tasting experiences – and who meet the following criteria below are encouraged to apply.
To be eligible for a Business Review and to participate in the Enterprise Connect program, all businesses must:
- Possess an Australian Company Number (ACN), or in the case of Remote Enterprise small and medium sized business, an Australian Business Number (ABN)
- Have an annual turnover between $1 million and $100 million,
- Be solvent
- Have operated in Australia and filed business activity statements showing ongoing trading in at least three consecutive years
- Not have received a Business Review previously from Enterprise Connect
TA Fastrack is working closely with the government’s Enterprise Connect Business Advisers to provide these services.
