To help small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, in April 2020 the Western Australian Government established the Land Tax Assistance for Landlords program.
The program provides those landlords, who provide rent relief to their small business tenants, with partial compensation through a grant that is linked to their land tax obligations. Assistance will be provided through a capped grant program of $100 million on a first-come, first-served basis; to encourage landlords to quickly agree to rent reductions.
Grants will be paid to landlords, at a rate equivalent to 25 per cent of their land tax bill for 2019-20 (including any Metropolitan Region Improvement Tax (MRIT) component), in relation to their eligible tenants.
