The $800 million JobMaker Digital Business Plan

The Government announced on 29 September 2020 the $800 million JobMaker Digital Business Plan. 

As part of this announcement the Morrison Government is encouraging and supporting more Australian small businesses to digitise, so they can compete, succeed and create job opportunities as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis. This includes an expansion of the Australian Small Business Advisory Service (ASBAS) Digital Solutions program.

Since its inception in 2018, the ASBAS Digital Solutions program has supported small businesses through low-cost, independent, expert and tailored advice to small businesses. The expansion of this service means a further 10,000 Australian businesses will be able to these services, enabling them to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the digital economy now and in the future.

Businesses will be able to receive information and advice on:

Websites and selling online.
Social media and digital marketing.
Using small business software.
Online security and data privacy.
Business crisis management and business continuity planning.
Finance management and boosting cash flow.
Staff management and creating a safe work environment.
Retaining and staying connected to customers.
Resilience and wellbeing.
