In regards to Jobkeeper Eligibility – does the ATO group Employers for Jobkeeper payments as the Payroll Tax Office groups them?
There are 2 entities with same owners and structure, different entities and trade as two separate business. The Payroll Tax office view them as grouped employers for Payroll Tax purposes.
One of the entities has discontinued trading and no longer has employees from 01st April 2020. When reviewing figures for the same periods (when the 2 business’s are grouped) the trading entity is eligible for the Jobkeeper but when they are put as separate stand alone entity’s the business that is continuing to trade doesn’t have the decrease in turnover – is this trading business still eligible for the Employee Jobkeeper payments?
