Reminder from the previous update: Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) #2

Applications for a 2nd payment under the RSP can be submitted from 17 September 2021 at 8 am.

Businesses will need to show a 30% or more drop in revenue in a 7-day period from 8 September until immediately before all of NZ returns to Alert Level 1 compared to a typical 7-day period in the 6 weeks before 17 August.

The payment will stay as $1,500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee up to a maximum of 50 FTEs, or four times the actual revenue decline experienced by the applicant, whichever is less.

Applications for the second payment can be submitted from 17 September on Inland Revenue’s website, www.ird.govt.nz.

Businesses and organisations will be able to apply for the second payment even if they have received the first payment.
