The EWSS scheme came into effect on 1st September 2020, and it is a scheme whereby an employee’s earnings dictate the subsidy amount that may be refunded in respect of that employee.
Please see link below to more elaborate outline of the scheme, including the employee’s earnings chart and the subsidy amount attributed to each earnings band (pg. 17, very bottom of page)
In summary, the scheme is open to employers who file their payroll submissions electronically through Revenue Online Service (ROS), and in order to avail of the EWSS, employer’s must possess up to date tax clearance.
This tax clearance must be maintained for the duration of the scheme in order to receive the applicable EWSS payments.
If you have up to date tax clearance, we at Solve as your payroll agent can register you for the EWSS.
Please email email@example.com as soon as possible confirming that you are eligible and wish to register for the scheme. A member of the team will pick this up and go through the registration process with you.
