My wife and I are retirees (in 70's) with a small SMSF.  We also qualify for a low income health care card. To help boost our income we run two small businesses, namely an art gallery (wife is the artist) and accommodation (Airbnb) one-room rental.

Our fortnighly income fluctuates because these activities are irregular.  But since the virus has struck we have experienced almost no visitors to the gallery (and hence no sales) and many cancellations for the accommodation.  Our fortnightly income from the businesses is below $1,000, but we also have an annual draw from our small SMSF Super.  Do we qualify for the Coronavirus Supplement?

Hi @Super_Song99,

 

There are a number of different payments available that are being administered by Services Australia, not the ATO.

 

You can find more information and check if you are eligible on the Coronavirus paymnet information page on the Services Australia website

 

Hope this helps.
