Has your business suffered a decline in income due to the Coronavirus?
If your business has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic (ie you’ve had a significant fall in turnover), you may be eligible to access the JobKeeper payment to assist you to be able to retain and continue paying your employees. You may also be eligible for the payment yourself as a sole trader or owner/operator of your business.
Eligible employers are businesses (including companies, partnerships, trusts and sole traders). In order to receive a payment, both the employer and employee must meet eligibility criteria.
Eligible recipients include Sole Traders and business owners who are actively engaged in running of their business such as a Partner, Company Director, Shareholder or Trust Beneficiary. Further information is available at the ATO:
Enrolment applications for the payment are now open, and confirmation of eligibility will be available from 4th May onwards.
If you're an eligible business applying for JobKeeper payment, you will have the option to apply yourself through the Business Portal, or alternatively contact us to arrange submission. If you would like us to complete the enrolment on your behalf please complete the request form/s below, and return as soon as possible.
To access the Business Portal and apply yourself, you'll need to set up your myGovID and link it to your business in Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). Further information on setting this up can be found here: Accessing ATO online services.
