Retail scheme vetting completed

June 8, 2020

The Government today said the vetting work of the Retail Sector Subsidy Scheme under the first round of the Anti-epidemic Fund has been completed.


All of the approximately 93,000 applicants have been notified of the vetting results.


About $5 billion in subsidies has been approved so far for nearly 62,000 eligible retailers.


The Government is now processing some appeal cases and more applications may be approved after review.


The scheme's hotline 1836 111 will cease operation at 6pm on June 12, while its enquiry email box will continue to operate until June 30.
