Now that we find ourselves at Level 3 again, the Government has a number of support mechanisms for both independent contractors and businesses that you may be able to apply for.
Businesses (including independent contractors) can again access the Wage Subsidy Scheme. Information on this will be available late today Monday 1 March 2021 on the Work and Income website: www.workandincome.govt.nz. Further information on other financial support is available on the WINZ website here.
The new Resurgence Support Payment information can be found on the Inland Revenue website here.
For anyone wanting to take advantage of the counselling initiative still on offer from the Vista Foundation and Home and Family Counselling, go here.
ScreenSafe has updated its COVID-19 information today. The latest information, guidelines, and resources are available here.
As always, we are available should members require advice, information or assistance, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
Stay safe, be kind.
