When and how will JobKeeper be paid?
The program is effective from yesterday, March 30, 2020.
Eligible businesses can begin distributing the payment immediately and be reimbursed in May, when the first payments will be received as monthly arrears.
Employers will pay employees as usual, and will receive payments monthly in arrears from the ATO.
Will the payment change dependent on my ordinary income?
No. The payment is $1500 no matter how much an employee’s ordinary income is.
