Meanwhile, Partners Finance & Lease Director Jim Boult started his ‘business as usual’ with a celebratory bungy in Queenstown.

Small Business Cashflow Loan Scheme

Businesses can access interest free loans from $10,000, plus $1,800 per full-time employee if they have up to 50 full-time employees. The loan is interest free if they are repaid in the first year and then 3% for a maximum term of three years.

A temporary loss carry-back scheme has been introduced to support businesses that are expecting to make a loss in either 2020 or 2021 by allowing them to offset profits they made the year before.
