Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Sole trader receiving JK, appointed to permanent position

Hi there, I thought I knew the answer but now am not sure. A sole trader was eligible for the JK Scheme. 

In August, they were appointed permanently to a role in a company, where they had been contracting under their ABN.  Does their eligibilty for the scheme cease upon permanent appointment to that role? I had thought so but just read another question and response on this forum which indicates otherwise and now I am confused.  Thanks very much, Mel

Hi @MelB

 

A sole trader can gain permanent employment after they became eligible for the JobKeeper scheme. However, they need to remain actively engaged in their Sole Trader business to continue receiving payments. They will need to self-assess being actively engaged.
