Reply To: Quick question team please. I have a full time job and also a side business and I’ve recently applied of the wage subsidy for employers or business owners as advised from one of my mentors (I do not have any employees). I can’t find it anywhere but I wanted to ask if I have to pay any of this money back if I receive a payment? I have lost revenue because of Covid19.

Hi, when you submitted the wage subsidy application this included an acknowledgement that your application could be reviewed or audited and if it is found that the criteria for the subsidy has not bern satisfied, a repayment would be required. The principle question here is likely to be whether you have suffered a 30% or more decline in revenue in a one month period prior to 9 June. Best wishes.
