Petition Offer one-off grants for the worst affected industries due to forced closures.
Behind every business is a human and their family, we want to secure a government grant system to enable businesses to survive closures and loss of revenue due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Co-funded payroll provides much needed contribution towards the wage bill incurred by businesses - however some are having to use what they receive to top up staff wages leaving them with nothing. Payroll is only one of many business expenses and the Co-funded Payroll scheme on its own is not sufficient to ensure the survival of businesses. A government grant scheme based on the level of detriment incurred by businesses would provide further support towards rent, supplier, insurance, utilities, employer contributions liabilities and other business costs, act as a safeguard against future unemployment and provide more economic stability during the reconnection of the economy.
