On 21 July 2020, the Federal Government announced that the JobKeeper payments would be extended until 28 March 2021, but also flagged that there would be new changes to how it operates.

From 28 September 2020 onwards several new changes will come into effect, including a sizeable reduction in payments for eligible employees, and a renewed turnover test to assess eligibility for employers. If you are receiving JobKeeper, or believe you may be eligible under the new eligibility test, we recommend reviewing both the Treasury fact sheet and the ATO’s website (links in the comments) for more information.
