NLNA partners with Tabcorp and continues to secure the future of the lotteries and newsagent industry.

The National Lotteries and Newsagents Association (NLNA) has officially launched its 3 year partnership with Tabcorp, the largest provider of lotteries in Australia.

NLNA was formed with the sole intention to improve income, increase foot traffic and reduce costs for our members. NLNA’s partnership with Tabcorp will inject energy and excitement into the industry, as we work together for the betterment of the industry.

Brendan Tohill, NLNA CEO said “This is an exciting partnership and lotteries are real growth pillar within our industry. Australian’s love lotteries and on the big Powerball jackpots one in three adult Australian’s purchase a ticket, we look forward to working with the Lotteries team around Australia”

NLNA is a new age association, bringing real programs to life. Working together with Tabcorp we continue to increase foot traffic for our members.

NLNA’s cut-through with Government during the global pandemic has been second to none in keeping the doors open nationally. COVID-19 highlights the importance of having an industry body in NLNA, with strong government relationships who advocate on behalf of our members.

NLNA Covid-19 Update: ACT Commercial Tenancy Relief

NLNA Covid-19 Update: ACT Commercial Tenancy Relief

Dear Members,

ACT COVID ALERT

Commercial Tenancy Relief

The ACT Government is reinstating measures which require commercial landlords to engage in good faith negotiations with local business tenants hardest hit by COVID-19 during the current ACT lockdown.

The new temporary commercial leases declaration will prevent commercial landlords from taking prescribed actions against tenants impacted by COVID-19 such as terminating their lease without first discussing lease arrangements. The declaration will apply from 12 August 2021 when the ACT was placed into lockdown.

Commercial landlords who offer rent relief may be eligible for a commercial rates credit of up to $5,000. A credit is also available for owner-operators who meet the eligibility criteria. 

The COVID-19 Local Business Commissioner has been re-instated to connect businesses with information about the declaration, financial assistance, and mental health support. The ACT Government will also fund professional mediation services to facilitate good faith negotiations between landlords and tenants.

In addition to these initiatives, the ACT Government will waive rent payments for the month of September for any business and community sector tenants of government-owned properties that have been affected by the COVID-19 lockdown. Tenants who have experienced a 30 percent reduction in turnover in August will be eligible for a full waiver of their September rent payments.

Yours sincerely,

Brendan Tohill | Chief Executive Officer
NLNA – National Lotteries Newsagents Association

NLNA Covid-19 Update: ACT lockdown extended a further two weeks

NLNA Covid-19 Update: ACT lockdown extended a further two weeks

Dear Members,

 

ACT COVID ALERT

The ACT Government has further extended its lockdown until 5 pm, Friday 17 September

There will be some amendments to restrictions, including for lower-risk outdoor activities.

These amendments will come into effect from 5:00 pm this Thursday (2 September), and include:

  • One household (any size) or up to 5 people can gather outdoors for up to 2 hours for exercise or non-organised recreation.
  • Outdoor playgrounds will reopen where people can maintain physical distancing. Enclosed playgrounds will need to apply the one person per four square metre rule.
  • The number of people able to attend a funeral increased to no more than 20 people (excluding the people necessary to conduct the funeral).
  • The number of people able to attend a wedding increased to no more than 10 attendees (excluding the celebrant, but including persons being married and two witnesses).
  • Other religious ceremonies which are time-critical are permitted to go ahead with no more than 10 people (excluding those conducting the service).
  • The recommencement of services that operate outdoors and where physical distancing can be maintained, such as outdoor maintenance and gardening and dog grooming services.
  • ACT schools will continue with remote learning for the rest of Term 3. All ACT public schools and Early Childhood Education and Care services, including out-of-school hours care, will remain open for children of parents and carers who cannot work from home and vulnerable children.

Restrictions for retail businesses remain unchanged.

Increased support for ACT businesses impacted by COVID-19

The Commonwealth and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Governments have worked together to expand the COVID-19 Business Support Grants with the extension of the ACT lockdown to 17 September.

Reflecting the extension of the lockdown, the one-off ACT COVID-19 Business Support Grants will be increased by $10,000 for employing businesses and $3,500 for non-employing businesses where those businesses’ turnover has declined by 30 percent or more as a result of the COVID-19 health restrictions.

Businesses must be able to demonstrate their primary operation in the ACT, have an annual turnover of more than $75,000, be registered for GST, and have a total payroll of less than $10 million. They will also need to provide evidence of a 30 percent reduction in their turnover.

The package will be split on a 50/50 basis between the Commonwealth and the ACT Governments, with the Territory government to administer the program. This is a similar arrangement that has been in place for businesses in other jurisdictions impacted by COVID-19 lockdowns.

This increases the payments that were originally agreed under the COVID-19 Business Support Grants.

Anyone who has made an application does not need to make a new application – the new payments will be automatically applied if you are eligible. First payments are likely to be made in the coming days.

Businesses can find further information and apply for grants here. This information is being updated through the day to account for the increased grant payment size.

Yours sincerely,

Brendan Tohill | Chief Executive Officer
