Get you business online
The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a time of uncertainty for us all. One of the ways the City of Bayswater is supporting local businesses is through our Buy in Baysie grant funding. The first round of funding is available to businesses who are looking for online solutions to adapt their business in line with new restrictions due to COVID-19.
Local businesses in the City of Bayswater are invited to apply for up to $750 to help move some of their goods or services online.
The funding could be used to help set up a Shopify or Squarespace store, or for a device to live stream your classes or consultations. You might need a professional level Zoom account if your classes are more than 45 minutes, or you might need a webcam and microphone for your desktop. If you are a food business, you might want to subscribe to a food delivery service, or social media support to promote your brand. You know your business best.
If you need help moving your business online, apply below.
To be eligible for funding your business must be located in the City of Bayswater. Home-based businesses are eligible to apply.
A small business has fewer than 20 employees and less than $10m turnover. You must be a small business to be eligible.
Please give an indication of how much you think these changes will cost.
Adaptations may include initial software licences or upgrades, support or training to create online platforms; and/or hardware and equipment to make the transition to online or delivery.
To be eligible, you need to demonstrate a matching financial contribution equal to or exceeding the funding requested towards the item or to business adaptations due to the pandemic.
