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!

LAND ASSEMBLY OPPORTUNITY IN INNER-CITY CALGARY! This spectacular 64’ x 150’ R-C2 zoned lot is being sold individually, but when combined with the lot next door(MLS A1242380), would assemble 128’(frontage) x 150’(depth) of exclusive inner-city land. Located in the ultra sought-after inner-city community of Parkdale these two lots are perched at one of the highest points of the community commanding amazing panoramic views on a quiet family-friendly street. The extra-deep lots back onto a greenbelt offering the additional privacy of no neighbours behind. This ultra-convenient and exclusive location is just minutes from both the Children's and Foothills Hospitals, Tom Baker Cancer Centre, University of Calgary, affords easy access to the downtown core or escape to the nearby mountains and is just steps away from the Bow River and its extensive pathways system. Existing homes are rentable as-is. There is potential to subdivide the two lots into four lots (subject to city approval). The community of Parkdale continues to be quickly redeveloping with executive homes throughout its picturesque tree-lined street. This is an amazing opportunity to buy and hold land in inner-city Calgary or secure one of these last available lots before they are gone.
