JobSaver Eligibility Changes
As per an announcement that was released LAST Friday (10/9/21), the NSW government has introduced a requirement to fortnightly reconfirm your eligibility for the JobSaver payment.
These changes are unexpected and may impact your ability to receive future JobSaver payments.
This requirement will commence for the fortnight 30/8/21 – 11/9/21 and will include the following:
- Confirming that your business has maintained the employee headcount as per your initial application
- That your business has continued to experience a 30% decline in turnover.
Your turnover from 30/08/2021 – 11/09/2021 will need to be provided and this will be checked against the turnover for the same comparison year that was used in the initial application.
Service NSW will send an email to each current recipient of JobSaver, providing details of how to provide the required information.
If your turnover is still affected and you meet the eligibility requirements there should be no issue to submit the required information.
However, if you are unsure or believe that you may not meet the requirements, then before you make any lodgements, contact our office on 02 4228 4877 for a more thorough assessment.
This is a rapidly evolving issue and we expect more information will be available in the near future. A further update will be provided once more information has been released.
