Self-test for the Resurgence Support Payment (RSP)
Applications Open for Resurgence Support Payment
Businesses can now apply for Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) if they suffered a decline in revenue due to last week’s COVID alert level change to level 2 or higher.
Eligible businesses and organisations can apply to receive the lesser of:
- $1,500 plus $400 per full time-equivalent (FTE) employee, up to a maximum of 50 FTEs, or
- Four times (4x) the actual revenue drop experienced by the applicant.
The RSP will remain open for applications for one month after the return to alert level 1. To be eligible, the business should have at least a 30% drop in revenue over a 7-day period after the increased alert level.
You have until 23 March 2021 to apply through myIR. Check out the self-test to see whether you qualify.
