Are you worried about our Alert Levels changing?
If there is a resurgence of Covid-19, the Government is ready to back NZ businesses.
The Government has announced a package to support businesses and individuals in the event of a change in COVID-19 alert levels. The package contains a proposal for a one-off resurgence support payment which businesses can apply to Inland Revenue for:
- The one-off payment will be $1,500 plus a $400 payment per employee up to a total of 50 FTEs.
- Businesses will need to declare a drop of 30% or more in income over a 14-day period as a result of an increase from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 2 or higher.
- They must have been in business for at least six months in order to apply.
