Best service, and good refund. This is my second year with Madeeha. Thank you so much!

Get the JobKeeper payment - worth up to $19,500 per employee

Under the JobKeeper program introduced by the federal government, businesses and not-for-profits affected by COVID-19 can receive fortnightly payments to help cover the cost of employee wages. The JobKeeper program is in effect until 27 September 2020.

Even if you are a sole trader, you may still be eligible to claim the JobKeeper payment. Contact The Kalculators today to find out how much you’re entitled to receive.


For self-employed individuals working in the following entities, only one per business can be nominated to receive the JobKeeper payment.

Sole Trader

Are you eligible to claim the JobKeeper payment?

  • Employers (including not-for-profits) whose turnover has declined relative to a comparable period in the prior year, by at least:


    (if an ACNC-registered charity) – otherwise


    (if aggregated turnover is less than $1 billion) – or


    (if aggregated turnover is $1 billion or more)

  • Where the business has been impacted by COVID-19, but is not able to satisfy the relevant test above (e.g. startups or businesses not in operation a year ago), the business may be entitled to access an alternative ‘decline in turnover’ test. The Commissioner of Taxation has been empowered to issue guidelines for these alternative tests but has not yet issued any.

  • Self-employed individuals, including sole traders, company directors, partners in partnerships and beneficiaries of trusts. However, only one self-employed individual per business may claim.

  • All levels of Australian government (Federal, State and Territory, local councils) and foreign governments, as well as each of their agencies.
  • Wholly-owned corporations of any of the above and their agencies.
  • A business subject to the Major Bank Levy.
  • A company that is in liquidation.
  • A partnership, trust or sole trader in bankruptcy.

    How will I get paid the JobKeeper payment?

    • The ATO will process JobKeeper payments within 14 days of the end of the month in which the JobKeeper fortnight falls.
    • It is very important to have a nominated bank account into which the payment will be received.
    • The ATO will pay the JobKeeper payment using the bank account details they have either in the Portal, or that were reported in the last lodged tax return (if your refunds are directed to a Tax Agents’ Trust account you may wish to update this as a matter of urgency).
    • The ATO may apply the JobKeeper payment to the business running balance account while they determine eligibility.
    • In general, the ATO will not apply JobKeeper payments against pre-existing tax liabilities, however the Commissioner does have the power to do so.
