We recognise Auckland businesses and crucial industries are hard hit by the effects of COVID-19. ATEED is re-organising the business to put resources where they are needed most to support you. 

COVID-19 business support

ATEED is working alongside our partners across the Auckland Council group, government and the private sector to help Auckland businesses navigate these unprecedented times as well as possible, and be ready to bounce back strongly in the medium to long term when the COVID-19 pandemic eases.

Where can you access government support?

The government has setup covid-19.govt.nz. This website has everything you need to know about COVID-19 in one place.

In response to COVID-19 the Government is acting to support the economy. The package includes:

  • a wage subsidy scheme
  • leave and self-isolation support
  • business cash flow and tax measures
  • Māori community and business support
