JobKeeper Scheme – Update
Alternative Test & Deadline Extensions
On 24 April 2020 the ATO announced a number of additional tests to determine an employer’s eligibility for the JobKeeper Scheme, along with extended deadlines for the initial JobKeeper periods.
The new ‘alternative tests’ apply for classes of entities where there is not an appropriate relevant comparison period for determining a decline in GST turnover.
The ATO have also announced extended deadlines for the initial JobKeeper periods, with the Commissioner extending the time to enrol, from 30 April 2020 until 31 May 2020.
