Extension of Time to Enrol for the JobKeeper Scheme
Updated: Oct 8, 2020
The Commissioner has extended the time to enrol for the initial JobKeeper periods, from 30 April 2020 until 31 May 2020.
If you enrol by 31 May you will still be able to claim for the fortnights in April and May, provided you meet all the eligibility requirements for each of those fortnights. This includes having paid your employees by the appropriate date for each fortnight.
For the first two fortnights (30 March – 12 April, 13 April – 26 April), the Australian Taxation Office will accept the minimum $1,500 payment for each fortnight that has been paid by you even if it has been paid late, provided it is paid by 8 May 2020. If you do not pay your employees by this date, you will not be able to claim JobKeeper for the first two fortnights.
As always, we are here to help, if you have any questions in relation to the JobKeeper process please contact our office.
