I work primarily as a casual concert technician for a local government and also as a sole trader offering my services in event management, stage work, artist transfer services etc. Work with Council has continued with another department through a redeployment program but obviously the whole event sector is going to be out of action until late this year at the earliest.
Given local governments are excluded from the jobkeeper program, am I able to claim it as a sole trader?
It feels over the top to receive $1500/fn as I'm not losing that much work, but if it ends in September and work doesn't resume to normal until next year then it might work out that it covers my losses. I just don't want to get caught out through a technicality and have to repay the support payments.
