Reply To: Hi there… big thank you for doing this as a small business owner… my question is in regard to the wage subsidy we have returned to work in level 3 and I have received the wage subsidy do I continue to use that money to pay my team I received for 12 weeks… or will I need to pay it back to the govt as we were only closed for 4 weeks thank you in advancewendy Ann


Hi Wendy-Ann, you only need to have suffered the 30% drop in revenue for a month to qualify for the wage subsidy, even though it is paid for 12 weeks. So, if you were closed for 4 weeks, the fact that you have returned to work should not, in itself, stop you qualifying. Best wishes.
