From the 1st of September the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) will be replaced with the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) until 31st Mar 2021.
Employers with a 30% reduction in turnover or customer orders between 1st Jul and 31st Dec will now receive a flat-rate subsidy per week depending on the number of employees on payroll who qualify.
The rate will be based on the gross income of each employee as follows:
|€203 to €1,462||€203|
|€151.50 to €202.99||€151.50|
|Less than €151.50||€0|
|Greater than €1,462||€0|
- Employers must review they meet the eligibility criteria on the last day of every month.
- Employers will be required to pay employees in the normal manner by deducting income tax, USC and PRSI form employee’s pay.
- EWSS will not appear on payslips or in myAccount, it is paid directly to the employer.
