The government announced an increase to the COVID-19 resurgence support payment.
The next payment (available from 29 October) will remain at the current rate of $1,500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee, up to a maximum of 50 FTE.
Subsequent payments will be for $3,000 plus $800 per FTE, still up to a maximum of 50 FTE.
The frequency of the payments will change to fortnightly, on 12 November, 26 November and 10 December as long as Auckland has not moved to the new COVID Protection Framework.
Applications still need to be made through myIR.
If any further announcements are made, we will update you via our blog.
