Please visit the link below to calculate your GST turnover. (If you require us to calculate the turnover and prepare projections, our fee shall be $250). Please contact your client manager.
STEP 2: Record all monthly actual incomes in the provided Excel Assessment Tool and then compare them to current year and let the assessment tool evaluate if you qualify for the JobKeeper Payments for the stated months. For the months to come, record projected/estimated sales.
Please note: the rules surrounding whether you qualify for JobKeeper are quite complex and hence you need to determine this yourself. Generally for any of the months if your turnover fell by at least 30% for the same period from last year then you would qualify for that month.
STEP 3 : You need to record PROJECTED/ESTIMATED TURNOVER for the months of MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUGUST & SEPTEMBER 2020.
Please note: You need to evaluate business’s operations and how it may have been affected by COVID 19 and make a reasonable estimate.
