I’ve had a number of queries about these help funds currently, particularly the way to calculate the income drop. Do not forget that it’s also a requirement to maintain information of how this data has been calculated.
In the event you use Xero, creating the required stories is actually easy nevertheless if you happen to use MYOB or one other software program creating the stories could be fairly troublesome. It’s possible you’ll have to run separate P&L’s as they don’t allow you to add the right comparability durations.
This requires your corporation to indicate a 30% drop in income over a 7-day interval after an alert degree change and also you additionally want to satisfy the opposite eligibility standards.
