The Treasury has released a Frequently Asked Questions fact sheet on the proposed JobKeeper payments. The document responds to a number of questions raised by employers, including:

  • Eligibility of businesses and entity types
  • Determining eligible employees
  • Further details regarding the wage payment and reimbursement process
