Ernst & Young Webcast: JobKeeper Payment – Everything You Need to Know

Ernst & Young webcast provides more details about the JobKeeper payment


We recently provided you with details of the Commonwealth’s $130 billion JobKeeper Payment subsidy (read it here). The JobKeeper Payment allows employees of eligible businesses and self-employed individuals to receive up to $1,500 per fortnight before tax.

Following this announcement, many employees and employers sought clarification about their eligibility and obligations.

Ernst & Young (EY) has been actively involved in seeking answers to these questions from the Government and the ATO, and today released a webcast where they provided more details about the JobKeeper Payment. The EY webcast is presented by an expert panel, and answers many questions including:

  • What is the latest eligibility criteria?
  • How is the reduction in revenue calculated?
  • How are the turnover thresholds determined?
  • What if employees have already been retrenched?
  • What is the situation with an employer with multiple businesses?
  • What are employers obligated to pass on to their employees?
