Zinc Phosphie rebate for Primary Producers

Friday, 06 August 2021

The zinc phosphide rebate for primary producers is now available through the NSW Rural Assistance Authority. Eligible primary producers can apply for a rebate of 50% for the purchase of zinc phosphide, up to $10,000, to provide financial and cash flow relief to those experiencing financial hardship as a result of the mice plague.

Only one claim is to be submitted per application per ABN. You will need to submit all your invoices in one claim, you cannot make multiple claims to reach the full $10,000.

Eligible applicants can submit a single claim for a rebate on zinc phosphide purchased between 1 January 2021 and 17 December 2021. If you intend to purchase additional zinc phosphide in the coming months, don't submit your application until you have made the purchases. Applications can be made online via the NSW Rural Assistance Authority (RAA) and are open until 17 December 2021. All invoices must be submitted to the RAA by 28 January 2022.

Claims can only be paid until the closing date or earlier if available funds are expended.

 You will be required to upload a number of documents during the application process:

  • LLS Rates Notice OR Land and Stock Return for the property where baiting will be performed
  • Lease Agreement if you are the Lessee of a property where works will be completed
  • Tax Invoices for any zinc phosphide baiting that has been completed
  • Most recent Tax Returns & Financial Statements (contact the office for a digital copy to be emailed to you)
  • Evidence if accessing a Rural Financial Counsellor

The online application form has been designed to make the process as simple as possible. You will be required to upload digital copies of supporting documentation so please have these ready before commencing your application

If you have invoices to claim now and expect to receive more before the closing date you will need to submit these in one claim later via this Claim Request process.

You will need:

  • BP reference number
  • ABN number
  • Case number from original application
  • Invoices
