COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

17 Mar 2020

As you will be aware on the 11th March the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 (Corona virus) a pandemic. 

On Saturday the New Zealand Government announced further border measures in an effort to proactively prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, every person entering New Zealand will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

This is the case whether or not they have symptoms, and whether or not they are NZ citizens/residents. The only exception to the requirement, at the moment, is for those returning from the Pacific Islands. Self-isolation is only required if they experience symptoms.

In an effort to proactively prevent the spread of COVID-19 we will be restricting all client contact to email and phone calls for the time being, and making provisions for staff to work from home.

Tax relief and income assistance is available to people affected by the downturn in business due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). The IRD have a range of ways to help depending on your circumstances.
