We have already talked about JobKeeper 2.0 but the latest announcements made last Friday mean we now need to revisit JobKeeper 1.0 to ensure your business stays eligible and to maximise your JobKeeper entitlements.
The date for assessing eligible employees has [from 3 August 2020] changed from 1 March 2020 to 1 July 2020. This means you may now have more employees eligible that you can receive JobKeeper payments on.
Under the ‘one-in, all-in’ rule, if you have any employees that now meet the new eligibility requirements as at 1 July 2020, you must now add them to your JobKeeper declarations to remain eligible for any JobKeeper payments for any employees.
During this Calm Covid Convo, Rebecca Mihalic and John Knight covered how you can:
- keep your existing JobKeeper entitlement; and
- maximise your JobKeeper entitlement from 3 August to 28 September 2020.
To take a closer look at what it all means for you and your business, you can read our most recent JobKeeper update here.
If you have any questions, or need assistance with reviewing your JobKeeper eligibility requirements, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300BDEPOT and ask us about our business services.
