Our support lines are extremely busy as a result of the subsidy scheme being administered through payroll. Our Covid-19 help documentation will generally answer your query.

Please also note that all of our staff are working from home and may be answering your call in a sometimes chaotic environment. We appreciate your patience.

The operational phase of the wage subsidy scheme, details of which were announced on 15th April, is effective from 4th May. The software has been upgraded to support this.
