Amended JobKeeper Rules to 27 September 2020
On 14 August 2020, the Treasurer issued Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Payments and Benefits) Amendment Rules (No. 7) 2020. This deals with the changes to the current JobKeeper regime to 27 September 2020, and in particular, the adoption of a new 1 July 2020 employment reference date, in place of a 1 March 2020 employment reference date. This change applies from 3 August 2020, which is the start of JobKeeper fortnight 10 (3-16 August 2020).
The ATO also updated aspects of its guidance as a consequence of the adoption of the 1 July 2020 employment reference date.
