JobKeeper 2.0 Eligibility Changes Announced

On 21 July 2020, the Government announced that JobKeeper would be extended in two tranches to 28 March 2021, however the payments to eligible employers will reduce progressively over two time periods.

Further changes were announced on 7 August 2020 to ease the eligibility requirements for businesses in response to the tightening of restrictions in Victoria.

Employers will only have to show a fall in turnover in the relevant quarter compared to the same quarter last year. The original announcement required a decline in revenue over multiple quarters in order to be eligible for the extension of the program.
