  • JobKeeper extension 2 – key dates

    The second JobKeeper Payment extension starts on 4 January 2021 and covers the JobKeeper fortnights from Monday 4 January 2021 to Sunday 28 March 2021. It means:

    • if you are eligible for JobKeeper extension 2 you will need to complete a new decline in turnover test
    • the payment rates for your eligible employees will change to $1,000 for tier 1 and $650 for tier 2
    • if you are new to JobKeeper you can enrol in the program to participate in the remaining fortnights.

    To support you through December and January, we have extended the reporting dates for JobKeeper fortnights 20, 21 and 22.

    JobKeeper fortnight 20 (Monday 21 December 2020 to Sunday 3 January 2021)

    • You have until Monday 4 January 2021 to meet the wage condition for your eligible employees.
    • Business monthly declarations for JobKeeper fortnights 18, 19 and 20 are now due 28 January 2021.

    You have until Sunday 31 January 2021 to meet the wage condition for your eligible employees. This gives you extra time to pay your eligible employees before claiming JobKeeper payments in your February monthly business declaration.
