Deferral of Business Obligations
- Helping with deferring scheduled payments until July 1, 2020
- Confirming eligibility for additional funding and/or flexible arrangements
- Providing information about federal programs and services
Rental deferral agreements must be in place by April 1 and you must register your intent with the Department of Business by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 3, by emailing NSRentDeferral@novascotia.ca . By April 30, 2020, the landlord must submit an application to the Department of Business which will include an application form and a copy of the deferral agreement. Each landlord will be contacted directly by the Department.
This is not a stand alone program; the provincial government will be announcing more supports for businesses in the coming days that complement federal programming.
