Following the recent outbreak of Covid-19 in the Auckland region, the alert level is changed to Level 3 in Auckland and Level 2 for the rest of the country. The government has announced a new wage subsidy payment, the Resurgence Wage Subsidy. It's a two-week payment for businesses who meet the criteria and aren't getting the Wage Subsidy, Wage Subsidy Extension or the Leave Support Scheme.
Applications can be made from 1 pm on 21 August 2020 to 3 September 2020. It's open to employers throughout New Zealand. The 2-week payment will run from the date you apply.
You can find out more details about this subsidy on the Work and Income website.
Should you need any assistance in applying this subsidy, please feel free to contact our office.
