The Trades Apprentice Income Bonus has been incorporated into the Tools For Your Trade payment initiative and will be paid on top of existing payments currently available to Australian Apprentices.
Eligible apprentices will receive an additional tax exempt bonus of up to $1,700 as they reach milestones in their training. The Tools For Your Trade payment initiative will provide up to $5,500 to eligible Australian Apprentices over the life of their Australian Apprenticeship.
For further information on the changes to the Tools For Your Trade payment initiative, please refer to the Tools For Your Trade payment initiative page or download the Tools For Your Trade payment initiative fact sheet from the Australian Apprenticeships website
