You can still receive this payment and help your employees. Please apply.
If you have been forced to lay off employees from your business, please be aware you can now keep them on the books and supply them income from the JobKeeper payment at no cost to yourself.
This will be backdated to March 1, 2020, so lodge a request on behalf of any employees you had to let go due to a decrease in revenue or government restrictions.
Again, business revenue must have dropped at least 30% from this time last year to qualify.
