The fifth round of payments under the Morrison government’s $70 billion JobKeeper scheme is set to start flowing this week. However, before you can receive the payment you MUST submit your monthly declaration by the 14th of September.
The monthly declaration asks you to confirm your actual August GST Turnover, the projected September GST Turnover and to reconfirm your eligible employees. These declarations will need to be reaffirmed every month for the duration of the scheme.
You can make the monthly declaration via the Business Portal or we can lodge on your behalf.
Remember if you have eligible employees you will need to ensure you have paid your eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) per JobKeeper fortnight that you’re claiming and check if your eligible employees have changed or left your employment. You will also need to include any additional employees that became eligible as a result of the change of the test date being changed to 1 July (from 1 March). Please see here for more info. If this is the case, you will need to notify the ATO by re-visiting Step 2 to update their details before completing your monthly declaration.
