A pilot scheme designed to assist migrants with setting up their business in Australia is being run in Tasmania, which could signify greater support for business visa applicants is on its way.
The Tasmanian Government’s Department of State Growth, Business and Skilled Migration’s pilot scheme gives business migrants access to complimentary one-on-one professional assistance to invest over $1 million to setup their business in Tasmania.
Through tailored consultation sessions, business visa applicants can receive assistance with their business plans and produce a tailored action plan and local contact list.
Further assistance may include drafting and/or professional briefings of business contracts, workplace health and safety manuals, employment contracts, and liaison with councils and/or stakeholders and business associates.
The pilot recognises the value in receiving commercial advice to establish and operate a business or project in an environment that can be very different to a migrant’s home country.
