COVID-19: Wage subsidy eligibility tool

Both the Wage Subsidy Extension and the Resurgence Wage Subsidy Scheme have closed. If you applied for either of these schemes you can use our simplified spreadsheet to document your revenue loss.

The Resurgence Wage Subsidy and the Wage Subsidy Extension applications have closed. These subsidies helped to support businesses that have suffered a loss of revenue due to COVID-19. If you have any questions on the wage subsidies or your payments you can find out more information on Work and Income.

We developed an eligibility tool to help if you were unsure of which subsidy to apply for. This tool is no longer available. You may want to use our simplified spreadsheets to document your revenue if you have applied for the Wage Subsidy Extension or Resurgence Wage Subsidy.

Note: If you receive any wage subsidy it’s important that you submit to Inland Revenue: 

  • Employer Information forms declaring the total wage payments (the subsidy plus employer-funded pay) and
  • Relevant PAYE and other deductions.
