The Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) is a COVID-19 relief measure that replaces the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) and was implemented by Revenue to provide financial support for eligible businesses to cover the wage of their qualifying employees. 

The scheme provides a flat-rate subsidy to employers based on the numbers of eligible employees on the employer’s payroll and gross pay to Those employees.
