Definitions:
  • Business’ Annual Turnover refers to the turnover of the applicant’s business.
  • Aggregated Annual Turnover:
    • Defines turnover as ordinary income derived in the ordinary course of carrying on a business, not accounting turnover.
    • At a high level, it includes affiliate and connected-entity inclusive global turnover, excluding amounts derived from associates.
    • Is fully defined in section 328-115 ITAA 1997.
  • JobKeeper turnover reduction:
    • Is calculated on a per-entity basis, by comparing an entity’s projected / current GST turnover for a one month or one quarter turnover test period with the equivalent period in 2019.
    • The size of the reduction to be shown depends on the entity’s Aggregated Annual Turnover (see above) EXCEPT FOR not-for profits who only need to show a turnover reduction of 15%.
    • Projected or current GST turnover for a test period will be limited to include the sum of its own taxable and GST-free supplies occurring in that test period.

We hope this helps to clarify what programs your business can benefit from.
