How to access wage subsidies for your business

When you hire job seekers through APM we guide you through the whole wage subsidy process

Get started today

We discuss the eligibility of your business and APM job seekers, and simplify the application process for you.

To apply for wage subsidies your business must: 

  • have an Australian Business number
  • have not previously received a wage subsidy for the same person
  • not be an Australian, state or territory government agency
  • offer a job expected to be ongoing
  • offer a job that complies with national employment standards

Typically, you receive wage subsidy payments during a six month period.

You may also be able to apply for a "kickstart" option and receive up to 40 per cent of the total wage subsidy amount after your employee reaches four weeks in their job.

Additional incentives could apply to apprenticeships and traineeships.
