JobKeeper Critical Dates

Dear Member,

The following applies to organisations currently receiving JobKeeper. If this advice does not apply to you, please disregard.

Last JobKeeper Fortnight (JobKeeper 1.0)

JobKeeper Fortnight....................................13
Period relating to JobKeeper Fortnight.....14 September to 27 September
Employees are paid on or before ...............27 September

You don’t have to change your pay cycle to the same as JobKeeper fortnight - as long as you pay any JobKeeper eligible employees the $1500 before tax, sometime within the above JobKeeper fortnight.

If you usually pay your employees less frequently that fortnightly, the payment can be allocated between fortnights in a reasonable manner.

Some employees may have become eligible from 3 August till end of JobKeeper 1.0. You can read more about JobKeeper 1.0 changes here.

Monthly Declaration Periods

Each month you must make a business monthly declaration to claim JobKeeper payments for the previous month. You need to do this between the 1st and 14th of the month (for example, to be reimbursed for JobKeeper payments in August you need to complete your declaration by 14 September).

Monthly Declaration Period
1 September - 14 September
1 October - 14 October
For more information, visit the Australian Taxation Office website here.
