Please see below changes to the NSW Government's JobSaver Program.
Applications for JobSaver are still open and will close 18 October, 2021. You can apply here or have your accountant apply on your behalf if you request this option.
The JobSaver payment provides cash flow support to businesses in Greater Sydney and regional NSW that have an aggregated annual turnover between $75,000 and $250 million and have been impacted by the recent COVID-19 restrictions. It is designed to help businesses maintain their employee headcount.
The eligibility requirements are as follows.
- be experiencing a decline in turnover of 30% or more, compared to:
- the same period in 2019, or
- the same period in 2020, or
- the 2-week period immediately before any NSW restrictions – 12 June to 25 June 2021 (inclusive).
- maintain your employee headcount as of July 13, 2021.

With some industries and regions starting to bounce back from lockdown, the Government has introduced fortnightly reconfirmation requirements of business eligibility. This is to prove businesses are still experiencing at least a 30% decline in turnover.
JobSaver is paid on a fortnightly basis. You’ll be asked to reconfirm your eligibility for each payment at the end of each fortnight for the duration of the program.
From October, JobSaver Payments will not be processed without first confirming your eligibility. To confirm your eligibility, please log in to your MyServiceNSW Business Profile and follow the steps here.
The person who submitted the initial application is required to submit the reconfirmation of eligibility.
Please note that applications for the NSW Micro Business Grant also closes on 18 October, 2021.
