HomeBuilder applications extended until 14 April 2021

Posted on: | Category:

With the extension of the Australian Government's HomeBuilder Grant program until 31 March 2021, the SRO (State Revenue Office) wants to reassure you there is no rush to apply before the year ends. This is because the previous application deadline of 31 December 2020 has been extended.

Key Dates:

  • 4 June 2020-31 December 2020 — enter into a contract to build or renovate between these dates to be eligible for the $25,000 grant.
  • 1 January 2021-31 March 2021 — enter into a contract to build or renovate between these dates to be eligible for the $15,000 grant.
  • 14 April 2021 — all applications, irrespective of when the building or renovation contract was entered into, must be submitted within the HomeBuilder application portal by this date.

While applications must be submitted by 14 April 2021, it does not mean that all supporting documents must be uploaded by then. You can continue uploading your supporting documents, as they become available, beyond 14 April 2021.

You now have until 14 April 2021 to submit your HomeBuilder application, regardless of which grant you are applying for.

The SRO website has now been updated with the revised HomeBuilder guidelines to reflect the extension of the program and the two grant amounts that are now available:

  • $25,000 grant - you must enter into a contract to build or renovate between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020.
  • $15,000 grant - you must enter into a contract to build or renovate between 1 January 2021 and 31 March 2021.

The SRO are working on HomeBuilder applications in the order they receive them, including any additional documents they have asked you for. Due to the volume of applications and the Christmas-New Year period, please be patient.

Customer service centre Christmas-New Year closure

The SRO customer service centre is closing for the Christmas-New Year period at 5pm on Thursday 24 December 2020, reopening at 8.30am on Monday 4 January 2021. Their online systems are still available during this time, including the HomeBuilder application portal, and you can still contact them online.

We wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas 🎄 and a Happy New Year 🎉
