I’ve had a couple of queries about these assist funds recently, particularly easy methods to calculate the income drop. Keep in mind that additionally it is a requirement to maintain data of how this data has been calculated.
Should you use Xero, creating the required stories is basically easy nonetheless if you happen to use MYOB or one other software program creating the stories might be fairly tough. You might have to run separate P&L’s as they don’t allow you to add the right comparability intervals.
This requires your corporation to point out a 30% drop in income over a 7-day interval after an alert degree change and also you additionally want to fulfill the opposite eligibility standards. This income drop is in comparison with a typical 7 day interval inside 6 weeks previous to the alert degree improve. If your corporation is seasonal you will want to check this to an identical week within the earlier 12 months to point out the 30% lower.
There are presently 5 RSP’s open. If you have not utilized for any funds and your corporation was eligible you possibly can apply for all 5 now. Test the IRD Web site to see what dates every cost covers.
If your corporation is GST Registered it’s essential embrace the RSP in your GST return.
For these utilizing Xero navigate to the Revenue & Loss report. Set the date vary for a 7 day interval (e.g. twenty fourth August to the thirty first August) and add comparability intervals.

To use for the Wage Subsidy your corporation wants to point out a 40% drop in income over a 14 day interval (e.g. 17 august 2021 – 30 August 2021), and this must be in comparison with a typical consecutive 14 day interval within the 6 weeks previous to the alert degree improve on the seventeenth August.
The Wage subsidy opens each 2 weeks and it’s essential reapply each 2 weeks. Do not apply early or this is not going to be accredited and you may’t apply for any earlier wage subsidies as these have an in depth date. There isn’t any GST within the wage subsidy so make sure that this isn’t included in your GST return.
