Webinar: Understanding Canada's Emergency Wage Subsidy


Parliament has adopted a $73-billion wage-subsidy bill to help Canadian businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the devil is in the details and a careful examination of the legislation is needed to determine whether any given employer will qualify for the subsidy.

Join us on Thursday April 30th at 1:30 pm for a webinar where our tax and employment lawyers will discuss what you need to know and provided answers to your pressing questions.

During this one-hour webinar we will review the legislation in detail and answer questions submitted by you in advance as well as those that we have been asked by our clients, including:

  • Do I have to pay my employees their pre-COVID salary to receive the wage subsidy?
  • Do non-arm's-length employees qualify?
  • Do non-arm's-length employees qualify if they are remunerated in the form of dividends?
  • Do non-arm's-length employees qualify if they didn't receive a payroll between January and March?
  • How should an employer calculate revenue using cash basis accounting?
  • Do employers have to top up payroll to 100%?
  • I have a structure where one entity employs my employees and an affiliated entity invoices clients; do I still qualify?
