Description: The impact of COVID-19 on small businesses is proving to be substantial. The South Africa lockdown which began on March 27 has had many businesses in crisis from the first week – the continuation and unknown months ahead has left many entrepreneurs in anxiety. Many economic stimulus packages have been announced from the private and public sectors; this includes the varied South African government SME funding schemes as well as Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) support payments to employees.
Some funding relief measures have not been available for all sectors; although the UIF applications are open, there has been a delay in payments due to a large number of applications. This webinar is aimed at business owners who need help from finance experts to understand some of the relief/assistance options available for SMEs. The experts will help you to make sense of the information being shared on numerous platforms and allow you to determine which option best suits your business by helping you understand and take the right action:
- Identifying the schemes and funds currently available that are providing relief/assistance
- Explaining the jargon used for many funds and stimulus packages
- Detailing the relief measures South African Revenue Services (SARS) is offering businesses
