HOW TO APPLY
You apply online for either the COVID-19 Wage Subsidy or COVID-19 Leave Payment here.
When you apply you will need to give:
- your IRD number
- your business name
- business address
- the names of your employees
- your employee IRD numbers
- contact details for your business and your employees
The Government will be processing and approving applications as quickly as possible. They are aiming to make payments five working days after they have all the information require from you – but this will depend on the volume of applications received.
