JobKeeper Allowance and sole traders


Sole traders can be eligible for the JobKeeper payment if their business has experienced a downturn according to the ATO’s eligibility criteria.

A sole trader is both the business entity and an eligible business participant and so receives the JobKeeper payment themselves.

Enrolment for the JobKeeper payment began from 20 April. An online form will be on the ATO’s website. Entities (includes sole traders) that are eligible for payments for either the fortnights starting 30 March 2020 or 13 April 2020 will need to enrol by the end of April.
