    • Existing eligible employers must submit the new decline in turnover form before completing their business monthly declarations from 1 February 2021.
    • From 4 January 2021, employers must pay their eligible employees at least the correct JobKeeper amount of either $1,000 for tier 1 or $650 for tier 2.
