Business Owner Update - Friday March 27, 2020


Today the Federal Government and Bank of Canada finally made key announcements to help small businesses:


  • Increased Payroll Subsidies up to 75% - This will be back-dated to March 15.  No link or details yet on the limitations or qualification. I will get them to you as soon as they are posted.  Here is the announcement https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1kvKpXdndQmKE
  • Government guaranteed, interest free small business loans up to $40,000 – this is a program where, if you go to your bank to borrow money to get through the next few months, the government of Canada will be the guarantor.   Under some circumstances (no details yet), 25% may become forgivable.
  • Bank of Canada drops Prime Rate to 0.25% - this makes the cost of borrowing as close to “free” as it gets.  This...

In talking to many of you this week, the number one emerging issue is stress.   The rapid rate of change being imposed on us, our employees, suppliers and customers is unprecedented.  The uncertainty regarding our health, both physical and financial, stemming from a dangerous virus racing around the globe is overwhelming many people.


The result is often emotional – anxiety, fear, and depression.  This in turn impacts morale and mental health, both yours and everyone you work with – the ones working on-site, the ones working remotely and the ones now on EI waiting to come back.


They need your leadership.  This is not the zombie apocalypse because we can do a lot to get this under control.  Four things to consider:


  1. Calgary and Edmonton are very different from New York or Milan who have 7.5-10,000 people per km2.  We have...

Today’s Government Announcement:  No new Federal support announcements today from our PM.   The focus today will be passing emergency measures that give the federal government broader powers to spend money, redirect economic activity and implement further restrictions.

 

Ontario and Quebec are locking down their provinces at the end of today, except for essential services.  ATTACHED IS A LIST OF ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES IN ONTARIO. On this list is every one of my clients’ business types are included.  Most businesses engaged or supplyingConstruction, Manufacturing, Real Estate, Food, Healthcare and Transportation, among others, are all on the list.  The good news here is that if this becomes the template for other provinces, most of you will be able to continue operations – but please do it SAFELY.https://open.alberta.ca/publications/c...

The past two weeks have been surreal. Many employees and employers are hanging on by a thread, mentally and financially. Many employees worry if they will have jobs or receive enough hours to pay their bills. Employers are being forced to close, or scale back their services, all the while still having to pay their rent, taxes, and payroll, while the market for many services is simply on hold. What can employers do to keep their head above water, while still trying to do the right thing by their employees? There are now some options.


1.   COVID-19 Leave of Absence (Alberta Employment Standards Code):

Unpaid 14 day leave of absence due to Quarantine. Contact me to discuss as the Government has been quite particular as to who qualifies for this leave of absence. 


2.   EI Sickness Benefits (Employment Insurance Act):

An employee can apply for EI Sickness Benefits for up...

SW Calgary Pizza Take Out & Delivery Restaurant 

This is a great opportunity for an aggressive young business person to start their own restaurant. Located in one of Calgary’s most active neighbourhoods, surrounded by bars and restaurants, apartment buildings and businesses, this is an amazing location for a Pizza delivery place.

There are some tables for customers to sit and eat a slice, or you could expand the menu and offer more. There are 2 schools within walking distance as well, so you could really work on expanding the “by the slice” business as well. 

Call me for a walk through of this great business opportunity.

Rare Opportunity to Purchase a Calgary Boston Pizza

These don’t come on the market very often, so here is a chance to purchase a top tier franchise operation inside Calgary. This is a well established location with lots of history, in a very busy location, with lots of traffic. You can buy this at a fraction of the cost of buying a new Boston Pizza location, without the wait to find a location and with an already proven cashflow.

The current owners are looking to slow down a bit as they have been in the restaurant business for many years and own a number of businesses. This location will operate most effectively as a family run business or with a couple of young partners. There is lots of room for a new operator to creativley market the location and to streamline operations.

Please call me to go over the details of this busy franchise and let me set up a tour so you can see the operation for yourself.
