Covid Restrictions Support Scheme (CRSS)

The revenue guidance document on the Covid Restrictions Support Scheme (CRSS) which gives an overview of the scheme and some examples has been updated.

The main eligibility criteria:  where, as a result of the restrictions under Level 3, 4 or 5, a business has been required to temporarily shut their premises or operate at significantly reduced levels, with the result that turnover for that period will be no more than 25% of the average weekly turnover in 2019 for the same number of weeks.

The relief will operate as a cash payment equal to 10% of the average weekly value of the 2019 business’s turnover up to €20,000 and 5% thereafter, subject to a maximum weekly payment of €5,000, for the same number of weeks as the restricted period.

The Scheme runs from 13 October 2020 until 31 March 2021.
