As per an announcement that was released on Friday (10/9/21) the NSW government has introduced a requirement to fortnightly reconfirm your eligibility for the JobSaver payment. 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 30/8/21 – 11/9/21 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.
These changes are unexpected and may impact your ability to receive future JobSaver payments.
An email will be sent to each applicant by Service NSW providing details of how to provide the 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 please defer any lodgment until more information becomes available.
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.
Please contact your C&J adviser if you would like to discuss.
