EWSS Eligibility Criteria: July 1st to December 31st, 2021

The Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) will be extended until December 31, 2021, from June 30, 2021.

EWSS Eligibility Criteria (July 1st to December 31st, 2021)

The primary eligibility criteria are that employers must be able to show that they were operating at no more than 70% of turnover or customer orders received from July 1 to December 31, 2021, which corresponds to the 12-month period in 2019 (January to December 2019), and that this disruption was caused by Covid-19.

Every month, evaluate the following to see if a company qualifies for EWSS from July 2021 onwards

Acutal January to June 2021 turnover plus projected July to December 2021 turnover is less than Actual turnover for 2019 (Jan to December 2019) multiplied by 70% then the firm is qualified for EWSS.

Form for Eligibility Review

Employers who use EWSS are obliged to check their eligibility for the programme on a monthly basis. Employers must now file an online monthly Eligibility Review Form (ERF) on ROS as part of the revised Guidelines.

Employers that use EWSS will be required to complete and submit an online monthly EWSS ERF beginning June 30, 2021. The first submission, which will be used to determine eligibility for pay dates beginning on July 1, must be filed between July 21 and July 30, 2021.

Employers will be required to provide details of the actual results for the previous month on the 15th of each subsequent month during the scheme’s operation, as well as review the original projections provided to ensure they remain valid.
