JobKeeper payments

To our Valued Clients,

We hope you are in good health and in the best of spirits.

We have become aware of certain circumstances that may impact your business and felt that it was crucial to keep you informed.

A friendly insurance broker advised us that jobkeeper payments MAY be taken as a contribution to your gross wages, impacting the calculation of your workers compensation insurance.

As you know, the Jobkeeper payment falls under reportable wages.

However, at this point in time, I have not found any information to support the above claim.

Information available are limited to say the least. Please find the enclosed pdf linked below:

How this can impact your business?

Should ICare consider the Jobkeeper payments whilst calculating your Workers’ Compensation Insurance, it may be determined that you are paying more in wages and therefore could lead to an increase in Premiums or Adjustments for your Workers’ Compensation Claims if you are paying more than the previous financial year.

We want to advise you that we are here to help you estimate your end of year gross wages, or to discuss any element of your current services in an effort to support you wherever possible.

Should you have any questions or require any support, do not hesitate to reach out.

Many thanks and best wishes,
