Assistance for NSW Businesses on NSW-Victoria Border Impacted by the Container Deposit Scheme

On 8 June 2018, the NSW Government announced that it would provide one-off temporary financial assistance to eligible independent NSW retailers on the NSW-Victoria border that have been adversely impacted by competition from Victorian businesses operating outside the NSW Container Deposit Scheme (CDS).

IPART has been asked to assess applications from NSW retailers near the Victorian border for this assistance.

Eligible businesses must be small to medium independently owned and operated NSW retailers near the Victorian border that take a relatively significant proportion of total sales from packaged beverages (that is multi-packs of more than six (6) containers such as cases of soft drink and beer).

Applications are due by 31 August 2018.
