June due date is looming for JobKeeper

To claim for the JobKeeper payment for your employees, your business must make a monthly declaration with:

  • Current and projected GST turnover; and
  • Reconfirm the business and employee eligibility.

The declaration is not an eligibility test, it is information the ATO require to assess how businesses that are using the government subsidy scheme are tracking.

It is important to be aware of the due dates for JobKeeper monthly reporting and submit on time as the ATO have indicated that if monthly reports are not submitted they may stop Job Keeper payments. Completing the Declaration once is not sufficient.

If you are using Xero Accounting Software, the process is simple as the Declaration is already built-in to Reports.

The next due date is 14 June 2020.

A list of all dates can be found on the Australia Tax Office website.
