City Business Support Package

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a City Business Support Package was introduced in 2020, delivered in partnership with Business SA. The support package assists businesses in city and North Adelaide on their journey from recovery to growth and prosperity. In 2021, the support package was extended to give more businesses the opportunity to access the program and to allow more time to take advantage of the benefits.

The program, extended until December 2022, provides specialised services to support the response of city businesses to impacts of COVID-19, promote business capability and better position themselves in an increasingly globalised and digitally connected marketplace.


Business SA will deliver the following specialised services and advice:

  • Business Advice Hotline
  • Accounting, Statutory and Compliance Information
  • Tenants’ Landlord Advisory Service
  • Mental Health Support Services
  • Digital Capability Coaching
  • Grants and Tenders Support
  • Learning Webinars, Seminars and Virtual Conferences
  • Access to ‘Chamber’ networking events
  • Access to the Business SA Today newsletter subscription
  • Access to Business SA Resource Library.

Note: Businesses will have access to the Business Advice Hotline three times each year, and other advisory services (Accounting, Statutory and Compliance Information, Tenants’ Landlord Advisory Service, Mental Health Support Services, Digital Capability Coaching and Grants and Tenders Support) once a year at no cost. If additional access to services is requested, city businesses will be able to access them directly from Business SA at a discounted rate.


The City Business Support Package is available to all start-ups and small to medium sized businesses within the City of Adelaide boundary. Businesses do not need to be a current member of Business SA.
