COVID-19 employer support

Work and Income have a Wage subsidy and Leave Payment available to support employers affected by COVID-19.

The Government has removed the cap on wage subsidies that can be paid to employers affected by COVID-19. The cap of $150,000 per business is gone.

This applies to all New Zealand employers, contractors, sole traders, self-employed people, registered charities and incorporated societies. You are now able to apply for a wage subsidy for all your staff.
