Blueneck Consulting - COVID 19 Business Update

Blueneck Consulting - COVID 19 Business Update

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/covid-19-information-help-prevent-the-spread-poster


Right now, it is being left to provinces to decide on lock-down measures.   Alberta has the 4th largest population of covid-19 cases, but there seems to be no interest so far to lock down the province.   The Federal Government, however, is passing the Emergency Powers Act andcould intervene.  Most likely, for now, the Provinces are likely to be left to make local decisions and the Federal government will focus on economic stabilization spending and inter-provincial, international travel restrictions.   However, this can change quickly if cases start spiking quickly.


Financial support for your business, employees and clients:

Many of your businesses are now adapting daily business, and making additional preparations.  Below I’ve summarized programs to help ease the difficulty of reducing your workforce and other measures to conserve cash, which is critical over the coming months:


  • Help for your employees to conserve cash:
    • Income Tax owing can be deferred to Aug 31
    • Residential Utility Payments can be deferred for up to 90 days without being disconnected
    • Personal Mortgages and Loan Payments with Alberta credit unions and ATB can be requested to be deferred up to 6 months based on need.  Some national banks are doing the same thing, but also only based on need.
    • Emergency Isolation Payment for Albertans to have covid-19, returning from abroad or have been in contact with someone tested positive with covid-19 can get up to $1,146 until the Federal program is in place.  This is time limited till April 1.
    • Emergency Support for non-EI eligible Workers applies to any of your employees or their spouses are unable to work but cannot get EI.   If they have been asked to self-isolate because they have covid-19, suspected to have covid-19 or need to care for someone with covid-19, they can apply for $900 every two weeks for up to 15 weeks.  They can apply through the CRA MyAccount portal.
  • Reduce the pain of laying off employees by considering job-sharing program.   This allows employees to work part-time for you and get a partial top-up of EI.  If your business can stay open, this is a great way to drastically reduce your payroll and look after you valued staff.  However, this program takes 30 days to be approved, so you must get your application in immediately!  https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/work-sharing/apply.html


SUPPLY CHAIN CONSIDERATIONS

The US is expected to be the next epicentre of Covid-19 spread.  The US is in very bad shape to control this and the President is implying that he is willing to consider accepting high loss of life to keep the economy open.   If this happens, ANY SUPPLY COMING FROM THE US may be at risk.   Please review your US-based supply and monitor your individual situations on a daily basis.


However, China is starting to do phased re-opening of their economy and re-opening hospitals to the public.   It took less than 2 months of lock-down and isolating people.   Strict hygiene measures, quarantining the sick and social isolation/distancing have been the keys.   Please LEARN from this and take implementation of these measures in your work locations SERIOUSLY.  It is the best way to keep you working!

Here Is A New Listing That I Just Posted In Calgary, Calgary


Here is a new listing that I am happy to post in Calgary, Calgary.
Do you want to get into the Pizza Business? You can either keep this as a Franchise store or you can buy it and put in your own concept. At 1137sqft, you have just enough room for a good size kitchen and some storage while not being too big. There are a few seats for people waiting for their orders, or to enjoy a slice. The store is VERY well outfitted with walk in refrigeration and a large prep area. The Pizza ovens are Garland Air Decks that are in very good shape as well as a new Somerset dough sheeter and a Hatco slice warmer. The equipment is in excellent condition and the store is nice and clean, and ready for a new owner operator. The current owner fully renovated the shop when they bought it, including all new tile. The location is perfect for a pizza store, with so many positives. It is close to a number of high volume transit routes and the C-Train, on a major roadway with tons of daily traffic, and is in a very busy strip mall. The well-established neighbourhood a great mix of single family homes, as well as lots of multi family rental buildings, these factors are excellent for a pick up and delivery business. Call if you would like more details or if you would like to set up a tour of store.

This is an amazing opportunity for an experienced operator to buy an extremely successful sports pub in small town Alberta. If you like the small town lifestyle, then you need to take a hard look at this rare opportunity to buy a money maker. With 7800sqft of operational space that holds a full service restaurant and a pub with VLT's, the potential for this business is virtually unlimited. Serving great pub food has helped build a very strong base of regulars, a customer base that is made up of people of all ages. They also have a solid take out business as well. There is a seasonal patio, lots of parking and the operating hours are 7 days a week, from 11:30am to 2am. There is a good long term lease in place and there may also be potential to purchase the building.
