Jobkeeper Checklist Eligibility

JobKeeper Payments

Are you an Employer that pays staff?
Are you a business without employees and need to be assessed as an "active" worker in your business? (E.g. Sole Trader, Partner in Partnership, Director, Shareholder or Trust Beneficiary?)

Have you experienced, or expecting a 30% decline in your income turnover?

Check your Eligibility here:
Employers with Staff
Self Employed Persons

If you deem that you are eligible as an Employer, it is important to notify all eligible employees and complete a Nomination Form here. You do not need to lodge this form. It should be kept on file with your other employment records.

Next Steps for Employers?

If you meet the eligibility criteria and want to start claiming the JobKeeper payment on behalf of your employees, you need to start paying them at least $1,500 per fortnight (before tax) and continue to pay them for as long as you keep claiming.

First Payment
For the first 2 fortnights (Period being 30th March-12th April; 13th April- 26th April), you have until 30th April to make payment to qualify. For all other fortnights moving forward, payment must be made in line with your existing paycycle.

Businesses with Single Touch Payroll Software can lodge directly through their software by 30th April.

NOTE: Xero have created a new OTE Payroll Code: Jobkeeper Topup Payment.

Businesses who have not yet opted in, will need to manually provide all information by 04th May. (You will likely experience processing delays for payments so we recommend you opt in for Single Touch Payroll as soon as possible).
