Support for Kāpiti businesses
Both Council and central government have provided a range of support to businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic and our recovery from lockdowns. These are outlined further on this page.
The Government's Unite against COVID-19 website has extensive information for businesses and employees on working safely during COVID-19, and financial support and services available.
Various financial support schemes from central Government are available to help businesses and their employees recover from the effects of COVID-19.
For more information and how to apply, see Financial support for businesses on the Unite against COVID-19 website, which includes information on:
- COVID-19 financial support tool
- if your business has to close temporarily or reduce opening hours
- if your business has reduced revenue
- if an employee needs to self-isolate or get a COVID-19 test.
