When you use Xero, creating the required studies is admittedly easy nonetheless if you happen to use MYOB or one other software program creating the studies could be fairly tough. You might must run separate P&L’s as they don’t allow you to add the right comparability intervals.

To use for the Wage Subsidy your small business wants to indicate a 40% drop in income over a 14 day interval (e.g. 17 august 2021 – 30 August 2021), and this must be in comparison with a typical consecutive 14 day interval within the 6 weeks previous to the alert degree improve on the seventeenth August.
