It’s been a long Autumn and Winter is finally here. And so too is the Wage Subsidy Extension payment for those employers, including those that are self-employed, who are still significantly impacted by COVID-19.

You can apply to cover wages for an 8 week period, but remember you can't apply for the same employee twice.

You can apply for the Wage Subsidy Extension for an employee, even if you haven't applied for the Wage Subsidy for them before.

If you did apply previously for the Wage Subsidy, you need to wait until those payments are finished before you can apply for the Wage Subsidy Extension.

You can't receive more than one COVID-19 payment for the same employee at the same time.
