If you are eligible and you have not already done so, you should now register your interest in applying for the JobKeeper Payment via The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) – click here to register
There are several levels of eligibility
Employers are eligible for the JobKeeper payment if:
Sole traders and the self-employed with an ABN that meet the turnover tests are eligible for the JobKeeper payment.
Other entities (such as partnerships, trusts or companies) may be entitled to the JobKeeper Payment scheme under the business participation entitlement.
Your entity may be eligible for the JobKeeper Payment scheme if you:
A limit applies of one $1,500 JobKeeper payment per fortnight for one eligible business participant. If your entity also has employees, you may also be able to claim additional JobKeeper payments of $1,500 per fortnight per eligible employee.
The entity, not the eligible business participant, receives the JobKeeper payment. The exception is a sole trader, who is both the business entity and an eligible business participant, and so receives the JobKeeper payment themselves.
Further guidance and Frequently Asked Questions can be viewed in the following fact sheet.
