WITHDRAWAL OF APPLICATION AND REFUND OF THE AMOUNT BENEFITED FROM THE GOVERNMENT WAGE ASSISTANCE SCHEME (GWAS)
An employer, who wishes to withdraw his application in respect of GWAS and refund the amount benefited under the scheme, has been provided with this facility to do so.
In case the employer has already been paid under GWAS, when withdrawing the application, the amount paid under GWAS will be debited automatically from the Bank Account that was credited.
Kindly note that once the application has been cancelled, the employer will NOT be allowed to submit a new one for the same period or make any changes.

An employer would be debarred from the Scheme if he has benefitted from funds under the Scheme and has not paid his employees for the months of March and April 2020 or he has laid off even
one employee during the lockdown/curfew period. The Scheme is applicable in respect of Mauritians in full-time or part-time employment, and expatriate employees working in Mauritius.
