The worst of the Covid crisis might be behind us, but there are still important things to remember if you have received government support since 2020.
- Make sure any Covid support requests were declared correctly and that records of your applications are on file to support any future audits.
- Ensure you’ve kept comprehensive records of any wage subsidies you’ve received or passed on to employees, as well as subsidies you’ve repaid.
Made an incorrect application?
If you received a Covid-19 support payment and weren’t eligible, you’ll need to let Inland Revenue (and us) know ASAP.
The quickest way to disclose an incorrect application is through Inland Revenue’s myIR online platform. There, you can send a message to Inland Revenue, which will investigate the eligibility of the payments and go through the next steps with you.
