JobKeeper ending

COVID-19 measures

Don’t forget that the JobKeeper scheme ends on 28 March 2021.

The second JobKeeper extension has started and covers the JobKeeper fortnights between Monday 4 January and Sunday 28 March 2021.

If eligible, you can enrol for the second JobKeeper extension until the end of the program. To be eligible you will need to show that your actual GST turnover declined in the December 2020 quarter relative to a comparable period (generally the December 2019 quarter).

You might be eligible for the second JobKeeper extension even if you weren’t eligible for the first extension.

The payment rates for your eligible employees in the second extension period are:

  • Tier 1 – $1,000 per fortnight (before tax)
  • Tier 2 – $650 per fortnight (before tax).
