JobKeeper 2.0 looms large in our consciousness. We’re putting on a free virtual event for Freelance Jungle members to help answer your questions and allay your fears.

Holly Shoebridge (accountant) is back to help you navigate JobKeeper 2.0. A favourite in the Freelance Jungle, Holly is known for her generous answers and helpful approach to accounting.

40 to 45 minute presentation with 15 minute QnA at the end.

Topic includes:

  • JobKeeper eligibility – changed turnover tests
  • Required record keeping – changes from JK 1.0
  • Determining amount of hours worked in relative month for purpose of tier 1 or tier 2 payment
  • JK 2.0 reduced payment rates (tier 1 and tier 2 payments)

This is an ideal Crowdcast for anyone who wants to understand the difference between the first and second versions of JobKeeper in simple, no nonsense language from a friendly face.
