19 November 2020
During the current COVID-19 lockdown our office will be closed, however, we are still available should you need to contact us.
We will all be working from home and available via email and mobile phone and we can arrange a meeting by Zoom if required.
With the current lockdown there are a couple of key issues to consider:
JobKeeper 2.0 – the eligibility for JobKeeper for the January to March 2021 period is based on your income for the current quarter. Therefore should the lockdown result in your turnover for the quarter ended 31 December 2020 being 30% below the turnover for the December 2019 quarter you will be able to claim JobKeeper for your employees from January to March 2021.
Staff Wages – we have sought specialist advice for our clients from Strategic Employee Relations in relation to employer’s obligations to payment of staff who are unable to work due to the lockdown. Click on this link to view their Guidance Notes for your reference.
Should you require any assistance during this time, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at email@example.com. However, most importantly, stay safe and hopefully, the lockdown only lasts for a short term.
