We have started unpacking the recent Government stimulus package and would like to bring to your attention the following relief that is immediately available.
If you are a New Zealand business owner, and/or employer, and you have seen your work significantly impacted because of Covid-19 there may be some relief available for you.
As of right now, you are likely eligible for a 12 week wage subsidy, which is a lump payment for 12 weeks of either $585 per week for a full-time person, or $350 per week for a part-time person.
You can apply only for a limited time. Please do not delay in contacting either MSD, or us if you require assistance.
