I recieved my first payment of Jobkeeper as a sole trader a couple weeks ago.
However, work is busier than expected and my month's prediction doesn't seem like it will be accurate.
So not sure what to do as things seem very unpredicatable.
In saying that, I have lost 2 other forms on income through casual employment in the events industry that don't seem they will kick back in again till September.
I have letters from both these companies outlining this,
I could have recieved jobkeeper through either one of these but had already started my own application at the time and couldn't get through the times I tried to cancel my application so decided to ride the storm.
Where at the ATO could I send these letters from the casual employers to prove my case? Trying to be honest here through these unpredicable times!
Also, When applying for sole trader jobkeeper, I included my abn/sole trader income only, not my work I may have recieved through casual employment. not sure where I stand on this one.
Good morning @pm2
Thanks for contacting us and apologies for the delay in responding to you.
You can only receive JobKeeper payments from one source once you have applied.
As you are claiming the JobKeeper payments as a Sole Trader, you will not be able to claim JobKeeper payments from your casual jobs. The income you earn previously in your casual employment will not be included as business income as part of the turnover test for the JobKeeper payments you receive as a Sole trader.
The turnover test for the JobKeeper payments is only applicable to the income from your business and does not include any additional casual income received.
All the best.
