Cash Boost for Employers
Eligible Employers who have been affected by the economic downturn associated with COVID-19 will receive between $20,000 to $100,000 in cash flow boost amounts by lodging their activity statements up to the month or quarter of September 2020.
The cash flow boosts will be delivered as credits in the activity statement system from 28 April 2020. The amounts will generally be equivalent to the amount withheld from wages paid to employees in the March to June 2020 periods. In practice, this means you keep the amounts you have withheld from staff payments for these periods, and you may even be entitled to cash refunds.
An additional cash flow boost will be applied when activity statements are lodged for June to September 2020. These credits are equal to the total boosts credited for March to June 2020. They will be paid out in either two or four instalments depending on your reporting cycle.
