Can my Jobkeeper payment date be expedited by the ATO? I’m a sole trader experiencing severe financial hardship. More than 2 weeks ago I enrolled, identified myself as a business participant and completed the monthly business declaration. I don’t have employees. I’ve been hanging on ATO advice that payments would be made in the 1st week of May. I’ve not been paid, I can’t pay business expenses & I have no food. Can the ATO contact me re: urgent payment? https://twitter.com/bradls99/status/1258709406444711937?s=20

OUTCOME: ATO STATES MY JOBKEEPER PAYMENT SHOULD BE PAID IN 4-5 DAYS. ATO TWEET : WAIT UNTIL 15 MAY, THEN RING?https://twitter.com/bradls99/status/1258709406444711937?s=20 FEEDBACK : Thank you for the contact information. Allegedly the PAYMENT DELAY is due to the number of applications being processed. If this is the case, would the ATO, Treasury or the PM be willing to update the media? As a business owner, having accurate expectations regarding government assistance is essential to preserving my business and my mental health. I APPRECIATE ATO STAFF are working to process applications urgently.
