Thank you for all the updates on JK.
On the Initial Client Letter template under "When do you have to Pay" there is a statement saying
"You cannot claim the JobKeeper payment on behalf of employees who were not paid at least $1,500 before tax during each JobKeeper payment period".
This seem to contradict the ATO rule (published 14 April )under "How Much to Pay"
If your eligible employees earn less than $1,500 per fortnight before tax, you must
pay them at least $1,500 for each fortnight to claim the JobKeeper payment. This is
a ‘top up’ of their salary or wages and will ensure they remain eligible.
Would appreciate clarification please. Thank you.
