Financial advisor Grant Thornton has published commentary on these economic measures.
On 8 April 2020, the Australian Parliament passed the Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Payments and Benefits) Bill. This law provides for the JobKeeper payment. Charities registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) will be eligible for the payment if they estimate their turnover has fallen or will likely fall by 15 per cent or more relative to a comparable period. Read more about the JobKeeper payment here.
The JobKeeper payment will be administered by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). View the full list of COVID-19 support measures on the ATO website. The ATO has also published a list of FAQs for taxpayers.
