When will I receive the JobKeeper payments?

The JobKeeper payments operate on a fortnightly basis, with the first eligible fortnight 30 March to 12 April 2020; and the last eligible fortnight 14 September to 27 September 2020.

Payments to employers will be made from the first week of May 2020, reimbursing employers for payments made for the first two fortnights.

Thereafter, the ATO will make payments to employers 14 days after the end of the calendar month in which the fortnight ends.  Therefore, it is expected that for the fortnights ending 10th May, and 24th May, eligible employers will need to wait until 14th June to be reimbursed.
