JobKeeper Changes 20 July 2020 – changes for child care providers

The rule changes relating to JobKeeper payments for child care providers have now been confirmed.

Eligibility for JobKeeper payments will stop from 20 July for:

  • employees of an approved provider of child care services where those  employees whose ordinary duties are that they are engaged principally in the operation of the child care centre
  • eligible business participants where the business entity is an approved provider of a child care service.

Childcare providers need to ensure that they do not claim JobKeeper for employees and eligible business participants who are no longer eligible. You will not be reimbursed for payments made after JobKeeper Fortnight 8 (6 July to 19 July).
