I'm a tradie

Applications for new vouchers under the Home Improvement Scheme closed on Friday 2 June 2017 at 5pm.

All vouchers that have been approved will be honoured and please continue to work with homeowners to complete the jobs.

While the scheme has closed to new applications, there is still a significant pipeline of jobs to be completed before the scheme ends.  Of the 4,383 vouchers issued, only 870 vouchers totalling approximate $2.3 million have been redeemed, which means the work hasn’t yet been completed or the tradie hasn’t yet claimed their payment (figures as at Monday 29 May 2017).

Homeowners must include your quote when they apply for a voucher. Depending on whether they have received a voucher under the previous Home Improvement Scheme, the voucher issued may be worth up to $2,000 or $4,000.

Only one voucher is issued and each voucher is unique to the quote, the home, the homeowner and the business.

Once you have completed the works, the homeowner will pay you directly using the voucher and their own money for the difference. You can then redeem your voucher online.

If you are registered for GST, the GST on the value of the voucher is paid to you at the time of redemption.
