COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payments

The COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payments Scheme (August 2021) Amendment Order (No 3) 2021 (LI 2021/299) amends the COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payments Scheme (August 2021) Order 2021 (August Order) to provide for third and fourth grant payments.

A person is eligible for a third grant if the person experienced a minimum 30% decline in revenue in relation to a business or an organisation during a third nominated 7-day period. The third period must be during the period starting on or after 1 October 2021 and ending immediately before all areas of New Zealand return to COVID-19 alert level 1.

A person is eligible for a fourth grant if the person experienced a minimum 30% decline in revenue in relation to a business or an organisation during a fourth nominated 7-day period. The fourth period must be during the period starting on or after 22 October 2021 and ending immediately before all areas of New Zealand return to COVID-19 alert level 1.

The nominated 7-day periods for the first, second, third, and fourth grants may overlap in time.

The method of calculating grant payments for eligible persons who are members of a commonly owned group has been modified. It allows those persons to count employees of other members of the commonly-owned group if those employees regularly work for them. A member of a commonly owned group who has already received one or more grants under the August order can apply for a top-up payment if the calculation method inserted by this Order would be more advantageous to them.
