Good Morning,

2. Check if any Eligibility for Employees has changed (if it has you will need to “Identify and Maintain Eligible Employees” via this link first)

Once you login to the ATO Business Portal, head to the Covid-19 assistance pages and select

3. Business Monthly Declaration for JobKeeper payment
4. Provide your business’ current and projected GST turnover
5. Reconfirm your eligible employees
6. Reconfirm your contact and financial institution details
