Burdekin businesses wanting to unlock their commercial potential can receive free one-on-one consultations with industry experts through the Australian Government’s Northern Australia Tourism Initiative.

Under the Entrepreneurs Programme, small to medium businesses are matched with a tourism business advisor who is able to give advice on how to overcome current challenges and expand into new markets.

Eligible businesses also have access to up to $20,000 in matched funding to obtain external advice on a key area identified through the consultation process.

AusIndustry North Queensland Regional Manager Kay Strong said external advice could relate to topics such as marketing, human resources, and business expansion.

“Support is also available to bring groups of tourism companies together to work on a mutual business strategy, through the tourism partnerships service,” Ms Strong said.

“We have seen North Queensland businesses realise growth potential and take on new opportunities by accessing these support services.”

Eligibility criteria include:

  • Businesses must be a ‘tourism business’;
  • Be a solvent company with an annual turnover or operating expenditure between $750,000 and $100 million; and
  • Be trading for a minimum of 3 consecutive years.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said that many businesses may still be eligible despite not considering themselves ‘tourism businesses’.

“To be a valid tourism business under the eligibility criteria, businesses simply need to derive a significant portion of their revenue from visitors and operate in a tourism-related industry,” she said.

“Tourism-related industries include accommodation, cafes, restaurants and takeaway food services, clubs, pubs, taverns and bars, passenger transport, tour operator services, cultural services, sports and recreation services, and retail trade.”

For further information about the Federal Government’s Entrepreneurs Programme including full eligibility criteria, phone Council’s Tourism Officer on (07) 4783 9800 or visit www.business.gov.au/ep

Burdekin residents who own a house built before 1984 may be able to receive Queensland Government funding to help improve the resilience of their homes against cyclones.

$20M is now available under the Household Resilience Program for owner-occupiers who live within a recognised cyclone risk area and who meet the income eligibility requirements.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin confirmed the Burdekin fell within the recognised cyclone risk area, which spans north from Bundaberg to the Queensland/Northern Territory border and 50km within the coastline.

“As we are all aware, the risk of cyclones in North Queensland is very real,” she said.

“Burdekin residents have suffered the devastating impacts of cyclones before. The Queensland Government’s Household Resilience Program is an opportunity for low-income earners to make significant improvements to their homes and minimise the potential for future damage. I encourage residents to check their eligibility and apply as soon as possible to avoid missing out.”

Under the co-contribution program, applicants can receive funding for 75% of the cost of improvements, up to a maximum grant of $11,250.

Applicants must contribute the remaining 25%; however loans are available through the Household Resilience Program.

Valid improvements include roof replacement; roof structure tie-down upgrades; replacement of garage doors and frames; window protection including cyclone shutters or screens; tie downs of external structures; and replacement of external hollow core doors with solid core external grade doors.

Applications are now open.

Burdekin ratepayers will receive their Burdekin Shire Council rate notices in the mail this week with a due date of 3 September 2018.

Council’s 2018/19 annual budget included a modest general rate rise across most categories of 2.2 percent.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said the rise was consistent with Council’s 10 year financial forecast.

“Council is very conscious of the pressures of household budgets, so we worked hard to keep rate rises to a minimum,” she said.

Waste Charges remain unchanged under the 2018/19 budget, whilst Sewerage and Water Access charges have only increased by $5 and $4 respectively.

Cr McLaughlin said Council had increased the pensioner rebate by $8 for the third consecutive year, bringing the annual remission to $366 per pensioner.

“Pensioners may also be eligible for the State Government pensioner subsidy of $200 and a 20 percent discount on their State Government Emergency Management Levy,” she said.

“I encourage all pensioners to visit the Burdekin Shire Council Customer Service Centre with their pensioner card to check their eligibility.”

Rates payments can be made over the phone by calling (07) 4783 9800, online by visiting BPOINT, by BPay via your financial institution, by mail or in person at Australia Post or Burdekin Shire Council Customer Service Centre.

Any ratepayer who is having difficulty paying their rates by the due date is asked to contact Council as soon as possible to discuss a payment plan. This option incurs an 11 percent interest on any overdue balance, however regular part payments can minimise interest.

Ratepayers who do not receive their rate notices by 13 August must contact Council on (07) 4783 9800.

For further information please visit the Rates section of Council’s website or contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.
