    Hi,
    Im in the first stages of applying for the NEIS program.
    Basically I am testing the market and subleasing in a hairdressing salon to start a beautician business.
    The business will be my own (I have my own ABN, insurance, products till, customers, treatment menu, take my own bookings, business number etc etc) BUT my jobseeker provider said I may not be eligable as my business will be located in the hairdressing salon (like a partnership, but really we just share premises)- even though we have seperate businesses, trades, and salon names.

    Can anyone advise if I still am eligable

    Thanks! :)

    Hi Bettyboo,

    Welcome to the forums!

    A business that partners/piggybacks on another business is a great way to start a business I think. I can’t see why sharing a premises would make you ineligible.

    Unless there is a specific clause somewhere that says this, I wouldn’t accept that. Businesses share premises all the time, and some don’t have a physical premises at all, so it doesn’t make sense to me.

    Seek further advice, and good luck!

    Dave

    Thanks Dave,

    Yeh my job seeker provider were very reluctant to help. She also said to me ‘you do know that soooo many people apply for this scheme’… She also said because I have already started the business I wasnt eligable (even though im not making a profit and im ‘testing the market’ )It was quite disheartening, so I rang another company and they were more helpful.

    Hi Bettyboo.
    We can’t see a problem with your siting question.
    But it is best if you talk directly with a NEIS provider. They have a more comprehensive understanding of the NEIS eligibility requirements than do Job Services Australia providers, because it is a specialised field.
    They’ll also determine whether you satisfy all the other business and personal eligibility requirements.
    You can find the ones servicing your area here:

    Best wishes with your business venture.

    Hi Bettyboo,

    I was going to go through NEIS and had the interview. Belinda is the person to speak to there if you have any queries.

    As far as I am aware as long as you are a sole trader not in a partnership it should be ok, the premises wouldn’t matter as you are separate businesses but I would double check it with Belinda from NEIS to be 100% sure.

    Just as a thumbs up they will ask you for a budget as they will want to see if its viable. Make sure to make this budget achievable for your business. If you fall under the budget 2 or 3 months for example there is the risk of being cut off the program.

    Hope this helps and good luck!
