The JobKeeper Payment scheme is a subsidy for businesses significantly affected by coronavirus (COVID-19).
The JobKeeper Payment scheme has been extended until 28 March 2021.
From 4 January 2021 to 28 March 2021, the new decline in turnover form to work out eligibility for the second extension period will be available.
Existing eligible employers must submit the new decline in turnover form before completing their business monthly declarations from 1 February 2021.
From 4 January 2021, employers must pay their eligible employees at least the correct JobKeeper amount of either $1,000 for tier 1 or $650 for tier 2.
To support employers and their intermediaries that may be taking leave over December and January, there’s more time to meet certain JobKeeper obligations – see Key dates.
