The New Zealand Government has offered a $12.1 billion package providing for businesses to help them get through the current times.  We are certain this package will be expanded as time continue access to these packages is easy and can mostly be completed online with a very quick response. 

To provide you with some useful tips we thought it was a good time to outline some assistance EC Credit Control can provide as well as a summary of what the government is providing businesses to help them get through the current times.

The government’s current package includes:

  • Initial $500 million boost for health
  • $5.1 billion in wage subsidies for affected businesses in all sectors and regions
  • $126 million in COVID-19 leave and self-isolation support
  • $2.8 billion income support package for our most vulnerable, including a permanent $25 per week benefit increase and a doubling of the Winter Energy Payment for 2020
  • $100 million redeployment package
  • $2.8 billion in business tax changes to free up cashflow, including a provisional tax threshold lift, the reinstatement of building depreciation and writing off interest on the late payment of tax
