Individuals that are hoping to get a grant from the government will often ask if they have to apply for the small business grants first before starting the business. Ideally you want to have your funds in place before you make any business commitments. When you apply for the business grants and loans from the Australian government you will be required to fill out an application and most likely submit a business plan. Most likely there are some things that you can put in place regarding your business but ultimately you will want to wait till you have the money in hand if you are dependent on the small business grant.
