Dear Client

We acknowledge that you have been subjected to several emails from us in the past two weeks that may or may not be relevant to you. Thank you for your understanding that we do not wish to miss any scenario which may involve you or your business.

JobKeeper Monthly Declaration

If your business has enrolled in the JobKeeper Payment Scheme, then each month you are required to reconfirm the eligibility of your business and your reported eligible employees.

You must also provide information as to your current and projected GST turnover. This is not a retest of your eligibility, but rather an indication of how your business is progressing under the JobKeeper Payment Scheme.

As from 4 May 2020, the Monthly Business Declaration needs to be made for April 2020. Reimbursement from the Government will not be paid until your have made this Declaration.
