Covid-19 – Breaking news – Support for Small Businesses

Wednesday 15 April 2020

This morning a raft of measures has been announced – you need to check them out

  • There are potentially key tax changes that may substantially reduce your tax payments due next month – check with your accountant.
  • Further assistance regarding commercial leases.
  • Business Consultancy support (see below).

The associated fact sheet with details of the support can be found here https://www.beehive.govt.nz/sites/default/files/2020-04/15%20April%20SME%20factsheet_0.pdf

 

Business Consultancy Support – is provided through various organisations (including the EMA; the Chamber of Commerce and the Regional Business Partners Network)

Essential HR is registered as a provider under the Regional Business Partners’ Network.  I am trying to ascertain if I need to put something extra together to provide services to attract this funding, and whether there is a special process to follow or if it is their standard one.  For the moment, if you are eligible you must employ no more than 50 staff – refer https://www.regionalbusinesspartners.co.nz/-/media/Project/RBP/Business-Eligibility-for-Vouchers.pdf) for eligibility.

The support you most likely need from me right now, will be in the area of running restructuring processes – and you are likely to be able to register for these  through my “One-on-one training” (Business systems) service or my “Minimising the risk of a PG” (Managing Resources) service.  This should provide a 50% discount on my advice here.

To take advantage of this support, you first need to register https://www.regionalbusinesspartners.co.nz/#register
