NSW expands JobSaver as lockdown is extended
The state will expand the JobSaver turnover threshold and increase maximum payments.
It aims to support Greater Sydney as the area braces for another four weeks of lockdown.
New South Wales Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has announced an expansion of the JobSaver payment, which will see the turnover eligibility ceiling increase from $50 million to $250 million, along with an increase to maximum weekly payments from $10,000 to $100,000.
Applications for JobSaver opened last Monday and will see businesses and not-for-profits receive 40 per cent of their weekly payroll, at a minimum of $1,500, as long as they maintain their full-time, part-time and long-term casual staffing level as of 13 July.
Mr Perrottet said that the increased maximum payments will be back-dated to applications made last Monday.
The added support supplied by the state will be in part paid for by the federal government.
