The Government has extended the JobKeeper Payment Plan until 28 March 2021.

Changes have been made to the original eligibility criteria and payment rates have now been reduced. Find out more about the new eligibility tests and how JobKeeper 2.0 impacts your business.

The JobKeeper payment is designed to help businesses keep their employees on the payroll during government-ordered closures and dwindling profits. The payment equals $1,500 per eligible employee, per fortnight. 

The government hopes that when businesses are ready to re-open after the hibernation period, employees will be able to go back to work quickly and with little interruption.
