Extension of time to enrol for the JobKeeper scheme.
PLEASE NOTE: 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 ending 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 and 13 April – 26 April), the ATO will accept the minimum $1,500 payment for each fortnight has been paid by you even if it has been paid late, provided it is paid by you by 8 May. If you do not pay your employees by this date, you will not be able to claim JobKeeper for the first two fortnights.
