EWSS employers list published

Feb 01, 2021

A list of employers who received payments under the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) in 2020 was published by Revenue. The list includes 39,800 eligible employers who received over €1.4 billion in respect of 443,100 employees. The amount paid to each employer has not been published, in line with the legislative requirements under which the list must be published.

The EWSS was introduced through the July Jobs Stimulus package, replacing the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) on 1 September. The EWSS was initially expected to support around 350,000 jobs into the beginning of 2021, at an estimated cost of €1.9 billion. With the growing prevalence of the coronavirus in Ireland since July, the subsidy available per employee per week under the scheme was increased from a maximum of €203 to €350, in October.

The latest COVID-19 support schemes statistics show that there are 45,900 employers registered for the EWSS and €331 million subsidy payments were paid in January.
