Important information about the stimulus package

Corona Virus Stimulus Package

I have had more inquiries about the new Corona Virus Stimulus package and who it may help. Please feel free to forward this on to your loved ones.

Below is a brief outline of each with a link to the fact sheet.

  • The Government is reducing superannuation minimum drawdown requirements for Account Based Pensions (ABP) and similar products by 50% to 2021. They are also reducing the deeming rates due to low interest rates on savings – Providing Support for Retirees

  • Offering a safety net to lessen the threat of insolvency and winding up business for financially distressed businesses – this package offers temporary measures to protect businesses from going insolvent or bankrupt – Temporary Relief for Financially Distressed Businesses.
  • Cash Flow Boost for employers – up to $100,000 to eligible small and medium sized businesses, and not-for-profits (including charities) that employ people – Cash Flow Assistance for Businesses
