Your business may be eligible for an 8-week COVID-19 Wage Subsidy Extension if you had a minimum 50% decline in actual or predicted revenue in the previous 30 days, compared to last year. Find out more on the Work and Income website.
Applications will be open from 10 June 2020 until 1 September 2020. We’ll send you a reminder closer to the time explaining how and when to apply.
The Wage Subsidy Extension must be passed on to the employees you claim for and your obligations under employment law continue to apply.
