Now that the JobKeeper legislation has passed it’s time to seriously get cracking.
If you have eligible employees and if revenue is down 30% on last year, or if that’s looking likely in the coming months, then YOU MUST REGISTER your interest for JobKeeper NOW.
The DEADLINE for JobKeeper REGISTRATION is 26 APRIL.
Failure to register by the deadline means you will miss out on JobKeeper payments for the first two fortnights.
If you’re unsure of your eligibility, just register anyway, it only takes a minute.
All you need is your business name and ABN, and a contact name, number and email address.
Once you have registered, the next steps are:
1. Check your business and your employees meet the eligibility requirements.
2. Continue to pay at least $1,500 to each eligible employee per fortnight.
3. Notify your eligible employees that you are claiming JobKeeper on their behalf.
4. Send the JobKeeper employee nomination notice to your eligible employees.
Here is a JOBKEEPER CHEAT SHEET we’ve pulled together which may help to answer some of the eligibility and other JobKeeper questions you might have. It also explains these next steps.
To help work through all the issues, and share information as it comes to hand, I’ve also created a Facebook Group (Your Business Matters).
So if you haven’t joined already, please join HERE AND FLAG YOUR QUESTIONS in the group where I will do my best to answer them for the benefit of everyone.
