The Government’s whole-of-economy support measures during the COVID-19 response include a JobKeeper payment for eligible businesses.

Under the JobKeeper payment, the Government is providing $1,500 per fortnight per eligible employee for up to 6 months for eligible businesses.

The payment will also be available to the self-employed. Businesses can also register for updates on the JobKeeper package as they become available on the Australian Tax Office website.
