Reminder - JobKeeper 3.0!

JobKeeper 3.0 - 1 July 2020 Eligible Employees

As per our newsletter sent earlier in August, the DEADLINE to top-up your 1 July 2020 'eligible employees' under JobKeeper 3.0 is TODAY.

To recap - the definition of an Eligible Employee has been expanded to include those employed as at 1 July 2020 as opposed to the original 1 March 2020 in JobKeeper 1.0.

All new employees who have been 'on-boarded' since 1 March 2020 may now be considered as possible Eligible Employees.  

These "new" potential Eligible Employees may be included in the August 2020 JobKeeper Claim Submission provided that they have met the Minimum Gross Wages of $1,500 per fortnight for:

  • JobKeeper Fortnight (FN#10) ending 16 August 2020
  • JobKeeper Fortnight (FN#11) ending 30 August 2020

If your business employs any person that meets the criteria as 1 July 2020 newly Eligible Employee for JobKeeper 3.0, you must:

  1. Establish the individual's Eligibility - See Employee Test Requirements
  2. The employee must sign the Employee Nomination Notice 
  3. Make any necessary 'top-up' payments to the employee by TODAY 

Should you need any further assistance, please contact us as soon as possible.
