Are You Ready To Be

Starting an online business has never been easier! Are you ready to be your own boss?

Click here to get started


NEIS – New Enterprise Incentive Scheme  

The New Business Assistance with NEIS is a Federal Government initiative that helps any Australian over the age of 18 to start a small business.

  • Are you working less than 25 hours per week and want to try something for yourself?
  • Are you studying part-time and want to start a side hustle that could turn into something more?
  • Are you receiving a benefit from Centrelink and would like to be self-employed?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you are likely to be eligible to participate in NEIS.

The NEIS program provides free training in how to start and operate a business and 12 months of mentoring to help you get going.

Maximise your success through NEIS. Business Foundations has helped thousands of people over the years develop their knowledge and skills and start a business for themselves.

If you have an idea for a business, apply today.

Apply Now For NEIS


You can apply for the NEIS Program and receive the JobSeeker payment and Coronavirus supplement if you are:

  • Unemployed;
  • Recently redundant;
  • Have a business that is not currently operating;
  • Are a stay-at-home parent looking to re-start work;
  • Are a university student struggling to find full-time work;
  • Are under-employed, working fewer than 25 hours a week; or
  • Are an eligible working visa-holder

For most of these categories, you can receive the JobSeeker payment through NEIS, including the Coronavirus Supplement.

Your eligibility is the same as for Centrelink payments, and you will need to have an eligible business idea.

If you are not eligible for any Centrelink payment, but are in a category above, you can still receive free training and business support while you start a business. If you have a question, contact us here.
