Home Builder Grant

Posted on

A lot has changed since the Government announced the HomeBuilder Grant on June 4, particularly in Victoria where building along with everything else has been locked-down.

In light of this, the Commissioner of State Revenue has provided a blanket extension of 3 months to the construction commencement requirement for the HomeBuilder Grant. Eligible Victorians now have 6 months from signing to commencement construction.

While the eligible contract must be signed between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020 (inclusive), construction need not commence prior to 31 December 2020. However, it must commence within three months of the contract date and construction cannot have commenced before 4 June 2020.

These figures are great news for all associated with building industry, especially those on the east coast.

Workforce Extensions has worked with the building industry for over 20-years, we look forward to supporting the industry as we all rebuild.
