COVID-19 EMPLOYER WAGE SUBSIDY

The subsidy is designed to support businesses to pay their workers. This is about keeping your team together and keeping them employed while we ride out the storm. Even if your business needs to shut its doors at least you can retain your staff until things improve.
We strongly suggest all food and hospitality businesses apply.
