JobKeeper Frequently Asked Questions

There have been many Jobkeeper frequently asked questions from both clients and on social media asked around the Covid_19 payment package. I have highlighted some of the more frequent questions and their answers in this blog article below. 

How do you calculate the GST turnover for Jobkeeper – Cash or Accrual? 

You calculate the GST turnover the way you are already registered to do so. Calculate the GST turnover as you are registered to do so for the Business Activity Statement. 

See ATO community 


Do I need to be registered for GST to be eligible for JobKeeper?

MyGov ID and Jobkeeper

Can Sole Traders without employees qualify for Jobkeeper?

Yes, register via your business portal, myGov account or ask your tax professional to register on your behalf. 


Where do I get the form for the employee nomination form?

What if I qualify for one month, but change my business model and increase my profits? Will I still qualify for JobKeeper?
