Covid 19 – Support for your Business

 

Here we are again in Level 4 Lock down.

The Government has activated a number of business support measures to provide certainty to businesses and workers and ensure money goes out the door quickly to protect jobs and keep businesses operating.

🔺The Wage Subsidy Scheme (WSS) allows eligible employers anywhere in the country can apply for the WSS if they expect a loss of 40 percent of revenue as a result of the Alert Level increase announced yesterday. The WSS rates have been increased to reflect the increase in wage costs since the scheme was first used in March 2020. Businesses will be eligible for $600 per week per full-time equivalent employee, and $359 per week per part-time employee. The Wage Subsidy will be paid as a two-week lump sum. Applications open on Friday 20 August with the first payments usually available after three days.

🔺A Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) is available if firms incur a loss of 30 percent of revenue as a result of the Alert Level increase. The RSP is worth up to $1500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent employee, up to a maximum of 50 full-time employees (so up to a total of $21,500).

🔺The Leave Support Scheme (LSS) provides a two-week lump sum payment of either $585.80 per week for full-time workers, or $350 per week for part-time workers, who must self-isolate and cannot work from home. More information is available here: https://www.workandincome.govt.nz/…/who-can-get-it.html

🔺The Short-Term Absence Payment (STAP) provides a one-off (once per 30 days) $350 payment for workers who must miss work due to a COVID-19 test and cannot work from home. Further information about this payment is available here: https://www.workandincome.govt.nz/…/short…/index.html

We will be updating our Facebook Page and Member Facebook Group as soon as new information comes out.

If you would like us to share anything about your business, we are happy to do so.

Take care

Pop into Gather Cafe in to enjoy a piece of Minty Matcha Brownie Bar paired with a glass of hot Matcha Latte - the perfect way to enjoy a cold winter morning. ❄️☕️😋

Matcha is powdered green tea. The origin of Matcha can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty of China more than 1000 years ago. Since it arrived in Japan in the 12th century, it quickly became an important part of Japanese culture. Nowadays it continues to gain popularity as the latest beverage fad.
