JobKeeper 2.0 - The Alternative Test

The legislative instrument confirms that the updated versions of the alternative tests should be used in determining whether an entity passes the original decline in turnover test for JobKeeper fortnights starting on or after 28 September 2020 as well as determining whether an entity passes the new additional decline in turnover tests to access the JobKeeper extension from 28 September onwards.

If an entity has already passed the original decline in turnover test for a JobKeeper fortnight before 28 September 2020 then there is no need to apply the original test again. 

The updated alternative tests released by the Commissioner of Taxation are broadly similar to the alternative tests that were released in connection with the original decline in turnover test. However, there are some key differences.


These have just been released, so we are putting together a framework to apply the tests.

We're here to help you if you need support to apply the alternative tests. Just contact our office on 03 5911 7000 for assistance.
