JobKeeper to continue for eligible businesses until March - Accounts NextGe

accountsnext on Finance - The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison gave a lifeline to the small businesses by continuing the JobKeeper scheme for the eligible businesses until March 2021. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this unemployment benefit scheme is extended for six months.

This critical decision came into existence two days before the Treasurer Josh Frydenberg delivered the federal budget. The job keepers can slate better with this extension until March 2021 to better support their business.

However, the tax accountants in Melbourne are of the view that this subsidy scheme will now be established as a two-tier payment mode scheme. This scheme was reframed with some extensions, tightened eligibility, and pay cuts.
