  • Second JobKeeper extension has started

    The second JobKeeper extension has started and covers the JobKeeper fortnights between Monday 4 January 2021 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. This is generally the December 2019 quarter.

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

    There are also different payment rates for your eligible employees in the second extension period. These rates are:

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