UPDATE 30 March 2020

Arising from the passing of the 'Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (COVID 19) Bill 2020' we are advising that where you are operating or planning on operating the ‘COVID-19 Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme’ that you operate the following:-

-        Where the employees Average Net Weekly pay is less than €586 you include a subsidy of 70%

-        Where the employees Average Net Weekly pay is over €586 but below €960 you include a subsidy of €350 per week

-        Where the employees Average Net Weekly pay is in excess of €960 they have no subsidy


If you operate the transitional period of €410 maximum per employee without reference to their earnings, any overpayment will be required to be refunded to Revenue and may require a claw back from the employee.


Revenue have provided a very useful updated Guidance Document at https://www.revenue.ie/en/employing-people/documents/pmod-topics/guidance-on-operation-of-temporary-covid-wage-subsidy-scheme.pdf


We will endeavour to keep the News Section of our website updated with relevant developments.
