Covid 19 Payroll Subsidy Info

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!

Canadian Brewhouse For Sale in Alberta Not very often do these stores come up for sale, as most of them are corporately owned. The current owner has multiple business holdings and would like to focus on those, so they have decided to put this store up for sale. This absolutely immaculate store is an amazing opportunity for the right buyer. It is one of the nicest builds I have walked through in my career, it has all the bells and whistles. The Canadian Brewhouse has been in business for over 20yrs and now boasts over 40 locations Canada wide. This is a rare opportunity to own one of these amazing restaurant/pub businesses. If you would like more information, please call for a full package.

Fully Fixtured QSR Restaurant in Marda Loop/Altadore! **JUST SELLING THE FIXTURES AND EQUIPMENT, NAME AND CONCEPT WILL BE REMOVED** Very seldom do you get a chance to buy a fully fixtured restaurant in a great neighbourhood for a price like this! The location is almost brand new and is set up with a fully vented kitchen, walk in cooler & freezer, interior seating and a patio. You could convert this to just about any concept you have in mind, it would be an easy renovation.

Counterfeit Canadian Money in Calgary

I just wanted to send out a warning to my friends and clients about some counterfeit Canadian currency making the rounds out there. It looks VERY real, but has some distinct markings if you and your staff look closely. 

The serial number is missing.

There is writing that states "Prank Use Only" and "For Motion Picture Use Only" on the bills.

Tell your staff to be extra vigilant when accepting cash. Thank you to Annie MacInnis of the Kensington BRZ for the notification and Cst. David Harms of CPS for providing the images.
