Australian Government Jobkeeper Payment

Webinar 16 April 2020

The JobKeeper subsidy represents the largest single stimulus initiative ever offered to Australian business. A payment of $1,500 per fortnight for each eligible employee for a period of up to 6 months is a massive underwrite of the Australian economy and already hundreds of thousands of businesses have registered their interest to participate in the scheme. With $130 billion on offer, there are plenty of risks if you get it wrong. And, like any package of this type, the devil is in the detail. (Note - at the 33min point, superannuation is payable on all jobkeeper payments where the employee works, it is not payable on the 'top up' if the employee doesn't work, the slides are correct but I mixed the two when presenting....)

Here's what we covered during our webinar on Thursday April 16th:
✅ Eligibility for employers, employees, sole traders & other structures
✅ Calculating turnover, managing registration, and payment in practice
✅ Risk managing your business to avoid getting it wrong
✅ Live Q&A of more than 60 questions from webinar attendees
