Under the guidance of our Steering Committee, New Hunter Business is contracted by The Australian Government Department of Employment to oversee the delivery of the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) and the Exploring Being My Own Boss workshops throughout the Hunter area of NSW.

What is NEIS?

NEIS is an initiative of the Federal Government that provides assistance to Centrelink clients who are looking to become independently supported.

NEIS Assistance includes small business management training and business plan development, NEIS allowance for up to 39 weeks, business mentoring and ongoing support during the first year of business operation.

NEIS offers small business training, income support and advice during the first year of your business, and will help you to develop the skills and plan needed to ensure that your business can survive and grow.
