LATEST STORIES For Today's News From Around the Web..

Covid 19 Payroll Subsidy Info

For employers, we are getting more detail on the payroll subsidy:
https://www.singleton.com/2020/03/covid-19-the-canada-emergency-wage-subsidy/
  • $847 per employee per week or 75% of up to $58,700 salary, whichever is less
  • Still retroactive to March 15 (so far)
  • Expectation is that you don’t cut employee wages
  • Business must demonstrate/prove a minimum revenue loss of 30%
  • Federal government will be introducing severe penalties for abuse of the program
  • Application process expected to be announced within the next 2 weeks
  • No limit on business size

For those who were considering using the job-sharing option, this is now, for most businesses, a better option.


Next Steps:  I have started building detailed 90-day business financial plans for some of you.  This provides a specific list of actions based on your own financial P&L statements that includes estimating the impact of using the government programs and includes a list of other actions you can do to help your business weather the storm.  If any of you are interested in having this done for your business, contact me.

 

If any of you will need a business loan to survive a prolonged event, but would not otherwise qualify for a loan, there is money available from the government.  https://www.bdc.ca/en/pages/special-support.aspx.  


Small businesses with a payroll between $50K to $1M should look to the Canada Emergency Business Account https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/news/2020/03/additional-support-for-canadian-businesses-from-the-economic-impact-of-covid-19.html  As described in my emails last week, this if interest-free, $40,000 where you can be forgiven up to $10,000 if you pay it back before the end of 2022.


Here is a description of the application process and the questions you will likely be asked https://www.krp.ca/lending-rules-for-bdc-covid-19-relief-program-take-shape


This is the last week you have to re-plan your businesses for the next 2-3 months to stay in front of the situation.  If you don’t know what you need to be doing and how much of it you need to be doing, please contact me.   I want to see you all survive this event as best as possible!


Next 2 weeks, the focus will need to shift to full-implementation of that plan and start looking for short-term business opportunities with customers who are less impacted by COVID-19.  This is a very tactical that looks a lot like war-time situation management.   Even with a plan, the situation going forward will be fluid (some good, some bad).


Later in April,  your planning will need to focus on re-positioning your businesses to be ready to sling-shot out of this event! 

 

Please continue to pay strict attention to all of the hygiene/safety recommendations and emotional/mental health issues discussed here over the past two weeks!   Let’s do everything we can to keep our employees, customers, suppliers an colleagues healthy so we can all get back to work faster!

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


Here is a new listing that I am happy to post in Okotoks, Okotoks.
Very Profitable Little Stand-Alone Pub in Calgary Bedroom Community. This is the quintessential local neighborhood pub, where everyone really does know your name. Known in the community as the place that everyone comes to for a little fun and get away from the kids for an evening or afternoon. If you need a date night out with great food or maybe play some games with your friends…this is the place. There are 2 pool tables to play on, 4 VLTS and if you still need more, the dance floor is always ready to be used. But every Friday and Saturday night when the live DJ starts up…it is THE place in town to party and dance. The seating capacity breakdown is 115 inside and 45 on the patio, with a monthly rent of $6700. The pub is in great shape, and has been extremely well maintained, all the equipment is regularly serviced and shows very well. True neighbourhood pubs do not come available that often, so call to set up a tour of this great money making pub operation!

This is a downtown restaurant with lots of potential as for daytime and late-night business in the core. With 3000 sqft (+/-) of space, a nice little bar and a seating capacity of 83 people you could do a lot with this space. There is a strong opportunity to run a ghost kitchen out the back door while running a regular sit down restaurant at the same time. There is a walk in cooler and freezer, a fully vented kitchen hood fan with deep fryer, 6 pack stove and oven combo and a char broiler. There is lots of storage in the kitchen which is a plus in any restaurant. This is a great price for someone to open up a restaurant/ghost kitchen. Call to set up a time for a private tour of this restaurant.
