The COVID-19 Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS), implemented in March at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, ceases to operate on 31st August 2020.
It is being replaced by the new Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) which will come into effect on 1st September 2020 and run until 31st March 2021.
We have produced a guide for employers outlining everything you need to know about the new scheme. The guide includes:
  • Employer Eligibility
  • Eligible Employees
  • Rate of Subsidy
  • How to Register for the EWSS
  • How the Scheme will Work
  • Compliance Checks
