Money received as part of Australian national, state, or local government grants intended for starting new businesses are not free, because you cannot spend the money on just anything you want, and there may be additional restrictions on the program. These may include money matching stipulations or the like. When receiving such free money from government grants, part of the agreement will be to sign a contract stating the money will be used for your small business’ wants. Also, using the money for personal reasons would break this agreement, landing you in legal trouble.
