ABOUT THE EVENT
Companies across industries have suffered a lot as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Economic support during this difficult time is crucial to minimize the economic damage of companies. The Hong Kong Government has unveiled a number of relief packages to support the Hong Kong community. In particular, the Government has launched the HKD $80 billion Employment Support Scheme (ESS) under the second round of the “Anti-epidemic Fund” to provide time-limited financial support to employers in order to retain their employees.

InvestHK will provide a briefing on the different relief packages that companies may apply for, with a special focus on the ESS scheme. Additionally, Weir & Associates and Mazars will provide specific advice on the application process for ESS. Join us on Friday 5th June to gain practical advice and answer any questions from business applying for the ESS.
