Hi SME bosses,

Good news !  The 2022 ESS (保就業) can be applied from 29 April 2022.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has launched the 2022 Employment Support Scheme (“the Scheme”) under the Anti-epidemic Fund to provide wage subsidies to employees for three months (i.e. May, June and July 2022) to retain their current employees or even employ more staff when the business revives as soon as the epidemic situation permits. Eligible self-employed persons can also apply for a one-off subsidy.

The application period of the Scheme is from 29 April 2022 at 8:00 am to 12 May 2022 at 11:59 pm.

An applicant should apply in the capacity of a company/ corporation/ organisation/ natural person and must fulfil all of the following criteria:

(2)

Subsidised quota cap and maximum subsidy amount

The government-appointed agent will calculate applicants’ “subsidised quota cap” and “maximum subsidy amount” based on applicants’ records in the “reference month” as follows:

Monthly wage1 of “reference month” Respective subsidy quota according to the number of employees2 within the wage range Monthly maximum subsidy amount
$8,000 or more = “Full subsidy quota” $8,000 x “Full subsidy quota”
At least $3,000 but less than $8,000 = “Half subsidy quota” $4,000 x “Half subsidy quota”
Employees aged 65 or above with less than $3,000 = “Elderly subsidy quota” $4,000 x “Elderly subsidy quota”
Total “Subsidised quota cap” “Maximum subsidy amount”
