 Recorded Webinar: Coronavirus and JobKeeper: The Way Forward for Charities and Not for Profits


23 April 2020

Duration:  approx. 1 hour

The Government’s JobKeeper program, one of the most generous pieces of social engineering ever, is in substance a wage subsidy but in form a tax transfer payment based on concepts in the GST Act, complete with the ATO as gatekeeper, designed to negate the economic effects of the COVID-19 health crisis.  JobKeeper offers the most generous concessions of all to charities.   Not for profits, in some cases even more affected by COVID-19, will have to satisfy a 30% drop in turnover test.  This webinar will provide essential guidance to both groups in ensuring that they access JobKeeper if they are eligible.
