Please note the following in relation to applying to Creative Victoria for funding and the payment of grants.

    ABN registration

    As a general rule, if you have not provided an ABN, Creative Victoria is required to deduct withholding tax at the top marginal personal income tax rate of 46.5%.

    Tax invoices

    Successful grant applicants must issue Creative Victoria with valid invoice in accordance with the Australian Taxation Office requirements before the grant can be paid.

    If you do not generate your own invoices, you may choose to use one of the following templates.

    Paying tax

    Grants paid by Creative Victoria may be considered part of your income in a financial year and may therefore be subject to tax. You must determine your own taxation responsibilities.
