Special Tax Topics 2020: Tax issues in recessionary times: JobKeeper 2.0 and other issues (October 2020, Integrated)

For at least the last 10 years the Australian economy has allowed SMEs and SBEs to trade profitably. However, because of recent drought, bushfires and, now, the COVID-19 pandemic it is likely that the Australian economy will fall into recession despite the massive fiscal stimulus response from Federal, State and Territory Governments.

This session, our third in a series of Tax Issues in Recessionary Times, looks at issues relating to the extended JobKeeper scheme and cashflow boost receipts by PSI companies.
