Eligible Employers for Jobkeeper Payment

Employers will be eligible for the JobKeeper payment if all of the following apply:

 

  • On 1 March 2020, you carried on a business in Australia or were a not-for-profit organisation.

  • Your eligible employees are currently employed by your business for the fortnights you claim for (including those who are stood down or re-hired).

  • Your business has faced a:

    – 30% fall in turnover (for an aggregated turnover of $1 billion or less)
    – 50% fall in turnover (for an aggregated turnover of more than $1 billion), or
    – 15% fall in turnover (for ACNC-registered charities other than universities and schools)

  • Turnover calculation is based on GST turnover (includes all entities that are connected or affiliated with you)

  • To work out your fall in turnover, you can compare either:
    – GST turnover for March 2020 with GST turnover for March 2019
    – projected GST turnover for April 2020 with GST turnover for April 2019
    – projected GST turnover for the quarter starting April 2020 with GST turnover for the quarter starting April
    2019
