I have a non computer savvy mate who wants me to post this question in regards to Jobkeeper.
He is currently employed and is receiving Jobkeeper now doing just 16 hours per week.
He has applied for and received an ABN for some additional handyman work in which he will be a sole trader.
His question is how does this work in regards to whether or not he will conitnue to receive Jobkeeper payments at his current place of employment?
For example if he is receiving his $750 per week Jobkeeper from his employer but then earns for example $400 per week additionally as a Sole Trader does his Jobkeeper situation remain the same? Ie; will he continue to receive the $750 per week plus his additional example of $400 as a Sole Trader?
Is there anything additional he needs to advise the Government or his employer other than just including it all on his tax return.
He is a full time 38 hour per week employee originally.
Was cut back to 16 hours per week during Covid but has just been increased to 24 hours per week. Email received from employer stating how many hours they will now be expected to work each week during the $750 Jobkeeper period.
They have been verbally told not to expect to go back to 38 8hours per week when the Jobkeeper period is over.
