Earlier this week, the Federal Government announced the extraordinary “Job Keeper” stimulus package, which will see it pay the salaries of up to six million Australians employed and hence, provide much needed financial relief for many businesses during this uncertain time.
With an offer of $1,500 per fortnight, per ‘eligible employee’, many questions arise.
To address many of the queries our office has fielded so far, we have compiled the attached information as a general guide, which may assist you in following the guidelines and rules as they have currently been announced by the Australian Government.
At this point however, there is no draft legislation available and even the ATO have been unable to provide the specific information required for many businesses, at this point. It is however, in this context that we offer this information as a general guide at this stage.

We will continue to bring you more information, on both this package and other government announcements, as they come to light.
In the meantime, should you wish to discuss any of this in further detail, please contact our office on 07 5532 4555.
We look forward to assisting you where we can, to get through these challenging times.
