JobSaver is designed to support business expenditure through fortnightly payments between a minimum of $1,500 and maximum of $10,000 per week.
Payments will be backdated to cover costs incurred from week 4 of the Greater Sydney lockdown (from 18 July 2021 onwards).
The amounts available for businesses employing staff will be equal to 40% of weekly NSW payroll:
- Minimum of $1,500 per week; and
- Maximum of $10,000 per week;
Payroll means the Australian Tax Office (ATO) concept of total salary, wages and other payments, as declared at W1 in a Business Activity Statement (BAS) with respect to the payments made for employees that usually worked, or were based, in New South Wales. This will typically be with reference to the March 2021 BAS for those that report GST quarterly or the May 2021 BAS for those that report GST monthly.
Eligible non-employing businesses
will be able to receive $1,000 per week.
Please note that
sole-traders are unable to receive both a Commonwealth COVID-19 Disaster Payment and the JobSaver Payment.
