JobKeeper August Declaration

The August JobKeeper monthly business declaration is due by 14 September.

The August declaration is different – you’ll need to claim for the following three fortnights:

  • Fortnight 9 – commencing 20 July
  • Fortnight 10 – commencing 3 August
  • Fortnight 11 – commencing 17 August 2020.

Remember to include employees that are newly eligible and employed at 1 July 2020. You can do this as part of the monthly declaration, however newly eligible employees as at 1 July can only be included from fortnight 10. Please refer to the CSCG Business update 38 and 43 for further details in relation to the changes in the definition of eligible employees from 3rd August 2020.

For fortnights 10 and 11, you have until 31 August to meet the wage condition for all new eligible employees included in the JobKeeper scheme, under the 1 July eligibility test.

Business monthly declarations are due between the 1st to 14th of each month, to claim payments made to your employees the previous month. The sooner you make your declaration, the sooner you will be reimbursed.
