A Second Round of Resurgence Support Payments (Updated on 10 Sep 2021)

A second Round of Resurgence Support Payments has been announced today, 10 September 2021

Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) Second Round

  • Applications will open for a second round of the Resurgence Support Payment at 8 am next Friday, 17 September on Inland Revenue's website.

  • Businesses and organisations can apply for the second payment even if they have received the first payment. 

  • Applications for both payments will remain open until 1 month after the whole of Aotearoa New Zealand returns to Alert Level 1. 

  • You will need to show a 30% or more drop in revenue in a 7-day period from 8 September until immediately before all of NZ returns to Alert Level 1, compared to a typical 7-day period in the 6 weeks before 17 August. 

  • The payment will stay as $1,500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee up to a maximum of 50 FTEs, or four times the actual revenue decline experienced by the applicant, whichever is less. 

Remember:  The eligibility criteria also changed for newer businesses on 9 September 2021, when those who had been in business for at least one month before the alert level increase can now apply.
