Hi,

A sole trader was inelgible for Jobkeeper from April to September, because they were employed full time, however she is now looking at losing her job. Would she be eligible for any part of the the Jobkeeper Extention?

This person thinks she may lose her job in the next few weeks. So by the end of October 20.

Is she inelgible for the October, November December Jobkeeper extention period, becuase they were working upto October 20?

Can they apply for the Janaury, February, March Jobkeeper extention period?

 

Thank you.

Hi @LindaMarie,

 

This is an interesting scenario,

 

There are conditions that she will need to of met as of 1 March 2020 to receive JobKeeperTurn over tests are also used to check eligibility.  It may be possible for her to receive future payments.

 

She is lucky to have you helping explore her options.

Thank you for your reply.

She was working in her business at the 1 March. But only part time.

She would also meet the decline in turnover tests. She has a massage business. So it's a 100% decline in turnover.

Would she be eligible from the 28th September? Or only when she becomes unemployed?

Hi @LindaMarie,

 

An eligible business participant cannot be eligible while they have permanent employment.

 

This is because an eligible business participant must meet all criteria, which includes you are not an employee (other than a casual employee) of another entity.

 

The sole trade will need to meet the criteria of an eligible employer, and an eligible business participant in order to receive the payments herself.

 

They will be eligible after they cease their permanent employment.
