JobKeeper Next Steps

An important update for our clients who have enrolled for JobKeeper or are planning to enrol.

The ATO has released details of the 3 steps to be completed to successfully receive the JobKeeper payment.

These are:

Step 1: Enrol for the JobKeeper payment (available from 20 April)

Step 2: Identify and maintain your eligible employees (available from today, 4 May)

Step 3: Make a business monthly declaration (also available from today, 4 May)

These steps are best completed via the Business Portal. Please refer to our blog on how to set this up https://www.bqk.com.au/2020/04/important-information-regarding-jobkeeper-ato-business-portal

Key JobKeeper dates are:

  • By 8 May, pay your eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) for each JobKeeper fortnight to claim JobKeeper payments for April.
  • 31 May is your final date to complete steps 1 and 2 if you want to claim for JobKeeper fortnights in April and May.
