Recipients of JobSaver must re-confirm their eligibility for the 13 September to 26 September fortnight.
Without re-confirming their eligibility for subsequent fortnights, recipients will not receive payments for those fortnights.
There is no cut-off date to complete this re-testing lodgement. Businesses can choose to re-test a number of fortnights together, or go back and complete the re-testing after a few fortnights. Businesses will drop in and drop out of the program depending on each fortnight’s eligibility.
Yes, Service NSW is asking recipients who are no longer eligible to declare as such. If it is found that a business received JobSaver when they were not eligible, the NSW Government may recover that payment.
If your business is not trading at all, you do not need to do any calculations. You only need to complete the lodgement on the Service NSW website. However if you are trading, you will need to do the calculations before you complete re-testing lodgement.
Service NSW has confirmed that all JobSaver payments will be made for the month of September, even if the businesses do not complete the re-testing requirement for this month. However, payment beyond September will stop until the testing requirements are completed for the fortnight listed above (13 – 26 September).
You will receive JobSaver payments fortnightly, backdated to the start of the fortnight you first experienced the required decline in turnover, on or after the commencement of JobSaver on 18 July 2021.
You do not need your accountant or bookkeeper to prepare a letter of confirmation. However, you may ask us for assistance to ensure your calculations are correct.
