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 am happy to post in Township 244 Road in Rural Rocky View County.
STUNNING ROCKY MOUNTAIN VIEWS. This land has been in the same family since 1936. Not very often does a property of this type come to market. With a total of 90.36 acres(+/-), it has one of the most spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains in the area. The potential building site gives you a 180 degree panoramic view, it is absolutely breathtaking. The attached photo's don't do the view justice, you really need to see it in person. We are happy to set up an appointment for you to come out and view this once in a lifetime opportunity to own 90ac that is 16km to Calgary and only 33 km from downtown.

2300sqft Restaurant in a Stand Alone Building With Parking!

An opportunity to purchase a Calgary restaurant with great history and solid bones.

This stand alone 2300sqft restaurant with an additional storage area is located on a busy street, surrounded by lots of commercial businesses and well established residential neighbourhoods.

The kitchen is a good size and can produce a solid menu and easily service the 122 seat dining room. They have done well during Covid with delivery and takeout, thanks to the solid rent deal

The space is well organized and you can do Skip & DoorDash out the back door if you don't want them coming in the main entrance. There is lots of storage for dry goods and other product so that you can buy in bulk for savings.

Call me for a private tour of this facility.
