Media Release | 12 June 2020
Leading independent Australian business law firm Hall & Wilcox has designed an innovative app that allows clients to quickly assess whether they are eligible for government COVID-19 assistance.
The COVID-19 Stimulus Assistance app was originally launched in April when new federal and state government assistance packages were developed to help businesses affected by the COVID-19 lockdown. The app provided clarity on the tax consequences of the various measures available, the application processes and delivery timelines.
Given COVID-19’s evolving effects on the business environment, we have broadened the scope of the app to apply to universities, schools, charities registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission and businesses with no employees. The app also provides information on both the modified and alternative turnover tests under the JobKeeper scheme.
‘One of the upsides of the COVID-19 crisis is an upswing in engagement with these sorts of innovations,’ said Director - Client Solutions Peter Campbell.
‘We were pleased to get the stimulus assessment app out so quickly and we have enjoyed being able to adjust it quickly in the face of the rapidly changing environment we are in. Checkbox has delivered again as a no-code rapid development environment allowing us to convert ideas to reality quickly,’ Peter added.
