With the return of Covid alert Level 3 in Auckland and Level 2 elsewhere in the country this week, some businesses may be eligible for more government support. In particular, the Resurgence Support Payment for organisations that have experienced a 30% drop in revenue or a 30% decline in capital-raising ability over a 7-day period due to the raised Covid alert levels. Further details about eligibility criteria and how to calculate your drop in revenue can be found on the IRD link here. If you are unsure about applying or calculating your drop in revenue it is best you contact us directly to discuss your individual circumstances.
The Resurgence Support Payment does not affect your eligibility for any other government support you may be receiving. Don't forget there are a number of support schemes that have been outlined in the past that you may also be eligible for such as Small Business Cashflow Loan, tax relief and income assistance. For further details see here.
