I am on JobSeeker and now as a sole trader am reciving JobKeepr payments. 

Theres no way to declare this as income on the Centrlink portal to avoid overpayment.

I tried to input ATO's ABN but it wont accept it.

Alternativy how do i de-register from getting JobSeeker online while reciving JobKeeper.

Thanks

So it is not so simple to cancel payment.

As per Centrlink site.. i have called and after a very long wait and very long discussion Centrlink said i need to put in P&L for April-May.

Who can’t cancel their own payment online

You won’t be able cancel your own payment online if:

  • you’re using Income Management
  • you have a nominee
  • you have a partner on a payment.

You’ll need to speak with us.
