We are now on the road to recovery, and while it will be incredibly tough for many Tasmanian businesses, we’re doing everything we can to support them through this next chapter.

More than 14,800 grants have been approved for Tasmanian businesses and more than 1200 loan applications have also been lodged or are underway.

These measures help businesses through this difficult period of trading and movement restrictions as we work towards rebuilding a stronger Tasmania.

We know in difficult times like this Tasmanians rally together, and we can all support local businesses by buying something Tasmanian.

The new Buy Something Tasmanian internet marketplace allows Tasmanian businesses to list and sell their products and services to a new and wider range of customers.

Since launching just five days ago, more than 760 Tasmanian businesses have already created listings, and there have been around 72,000 total page visits.

We have a long road ahead of us and we are supporting businesses through our Social and Economic Stimulus Package so they can recover sooner and be with us post-COVID-19.

Businesses looking for assistance or information should contact Business Tasmania on 1800 440 026, via email at ask@business.tas.gov.au, or visit www.business.tas.gov.au
