Covid & Payroll

The covid relief package contains a credit for companies who continue to pay their employees while they can’t work. The caveat being that this ONLY applies to payments started April 1 so if you’re already paying your employees, you cannot take the credit like everyone thought you would be able to do.

Why this is the case, I just don’t know. I have some thoughts on the subject and really hope that cooler heads prevail, but I have my doubts.
