Dear team

Can a partner in a partnership with 3 partners (for eg A, B & C as partners). A is applying for jobkeeper as the business applicant and since B & C receive employee wages as PAYG employees, are they(B&C) eligible for jobkeeper payments under the partnership business?

Hi @Vaibhavajmani,

 

No. A partner can only apply for JobKeeper as an eligible business participant, not an employee. Only one partner can apply as an eligible business participant.
