It is sadly to say a huge lot of businesses in New Zealand have been impacted by Covid-19. New Zealand government has offered various proactive approaches to help local business deal with this global pandemic and one of those are Wage Subsidy.
The wage subsidy helps businesses affected by COVID-19, and supports businesses and their staff to maintain an employment connection. We know for the fact that a lot of accountants out there have been gone through painful process to insert each individual employee details from the list of dozens, hundreds or even thousands to the Wage Subsidy Application form MANUALLY.
