To encourage this and push them back until business picks up, the Restaurant Association has released a bunch of ideas they call the “roadmap for the future of the hospitality industry,” to prevent the demise of the hospitality industry. 1,000 other companies.
Ideas include extending the wage subsidy to include businesses affected under level 2. Although companies can apply for the subsidy under level 2 if another part of the country is below level 3 or 4, it is hoped that Auckland will soon join the others. country to level 2 – and when that happens, no one will be eligible, despite the ongoing financial blow to the hospitality industry.
The Restaurant Association also asked Finance Minister Grant Robertson for a “reopening payment” “that would go to businesses to help them reorganize their inventory, sort their businesses, open.”
“Cash flow is such a problem when you don’t see any income in your business for five weeks,” Bidois said.
It also suggests a “foreclosure subsidy” based on typical sales of a Level 1 site or the number of full-time employees; a “food waste reduction payment”, subsidized meals for those who dine out (up to $ 20 per person) or vouchers, and for meals without GST.
Bidois said the industry had the opportunity to meet with Robertson and officials and pitch the ideas.
“I hope they will be taken seriously and considered.”
