Preparing for the bounce-back
With many doors having to shut temporarily due to COVID-19, now could be the time to have that office reconfiguration done, the gym upgrade completed, hotel rooms and conference facilities updated or the restaurant renovation finalised.
Now could be the best time to consider a fitout as occupancy rates are low, staff are working from home, foot traffic is down and customers are staying at home. Preparing your industry for the bounce back, which could come at a rapid boom, will put you ahead of the curve and make your premise the standout in the crowd.
The key to attracting and retaining customers is the experience they have in your store, venue, clinic, gym, facility or office space, so whether than means boosting a bar or restaurants appeal, redesigning dining spaces, improving wedding or and conference facilities, creating new commercial or co-working spaces or upgrading kitchen or studio areas there are now federal and state government funding programs designed to help.
What financial help is available for my fitout?
The government have announced a number of measures that could help you invest in the above works. The Instant Asset Write Off (IAWO) gives businesses an instant cashflow benefit to immediately deduct multiple assets up to $150,000 if they are completed and used by 30 June. This benefit is not limited to fitouts, but also includes vehicle purchases, plant equipment, tools and office furniture and fittings.
