Employer Incentives

Australian & Northern Territory Government Incentives

Australian Apprentices Support Network administer and facilitate all Australian Apprentice and Employer incentive payments on behalf of the Australian and Northern Territory Governments. If you directly employ an Australian Apprentice (apprentice or trainee), your business may be eligible for incentives and your apprentices and/or trainees may be eligible for personal benefits. 



Australian Apprentices Support Network use the Government’s new SmartForm functionality to process Government incentives on behalf of employers.  From 1 July 2015, Training Contracts and Claim Forms will be electronic, using SmartForm functionality developed by the Department of Education and Training.  Training Contracts will be completed using a mobile device and stylus (to capture signatures) while access to Claim Forms will be via a secure URL contained within an email sent to the claim recipient.  To ensure all eligible incentives are paid without delay, Employers need to supply their email address to Austrlaian Apprenticeships NT via email to claims@aannt.com.au
