JobKeeper Key dates

I know you have probably been bombarded with information on JobKeeper but we don't want client's to miss out on an entitlement because they forgot an important date, so here is another gentle reminder. 

31 October 2020 – wage condition for JobKeeper extension 1

By 31 October 2020 – New entities enrolling for JobKeeper will need to enrol and submit their ‘Check decline in turnover’ form to the ATO online. 

For the JobKeeper fortnights starting 28 September 2020 and 12 October 2020 only, the ATO are allowing employers until 31 October 2020 to meet the wage condition for all employees included in the JobKeeper scheme.

For subsequent JobKeeper fortnights (16 and onwards) the payments need to be made within the jobKeeper fortnight to be an eligible payment.
 

Between 1 and 14 November

Complete a monthly business declaration and advise the ATO of the payment tier being claimed for each eligible employee. Entities will need to submit their ‘Check decline in turnover’ form before they can complete and submit their monthly JobKeeper declaration.

You must identify your eligible employees, eligible business participant or eligible religious practitioners each month before making your JobKeeper monthly declaration.

Submit future JobKeeper monthly declarations between the 1st and 14th of each month to claim JobKeeper payments for the previous month. For example, to be reimbursed for JobKeeper payments paid to your employees in November you will need to complete your declaration by 14 December.
 

Enrolling after October

You can enrol for JobKeeper until the program closes, provided you meet the eligibility requirements. You will need to enrol by the end of each month to claim reimbursements for JobKeeper fortnights in that month. If you qualify for the September quarter JobKeeper extension but do not enrol until November, you will only be able to claim JobKeeper payments from November on, you will not be able to claim for October.
