Businesses in the car wash industry whose turnover has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic may be able to access a wages subsidy through the Federal JobKeeper Scheme. The Scheme is designed to allow businesses to continue paying your employees as we go through the tumultuous Coronavirus environment and provide companies with a kick-start when it’s over.
Under the JobKeeper Program, your business can claim a fortnightly payment of $1,500 per eligible employee from 30 March 2020, for a maximum of six months.
Please find attached detailed information regarding the Federal Government’s JobKeeper Payments announced today. Please be aware this package still needs to pass through legislation before it can take effect. In the coming days, the Government will shed more light on how the Scheme will be implemented.
More information is available on the Federal Treasury’s resource site. It has detailed fact sheets on all COVID-19 economic measures and is a great resource.
