CRSS: Steps to take if a business has already claimed the restart week payment in anticipation of reopening on 5 July 2021, but where the business remains “significantly restricted”
Please see Revenue note in relation to the above, which is self-explanatory.
There may be circumstances where, due to a business having anticipated there would be a further easing of restrictions on 5 July 2021, the business already made a claim for the triple restart week payment, but, because of continuing public health restrictions, the business is unable to reopen or continues to be significantly restricted from operating on 5 July 2021. This means that, instead of being entitled to the triple restart week payment, an eligible business is entitled to remain on CRSS, including being entitled to the enhanced rate of CRSS for the weeks of 5 and 12 July 2021, with any entitlement to the triple restart week payment being deferred to when the business can reopen or when it ceases to be significantly restricted.
Where a business has already made a claim for the triple restart week payment and continues to be either prohibited or significantly restricted from operating on 5 July, they should contact Revenue to advise of the situation. Overpayments brought about by a restart week claim will be netted off against future CRSS payments.
