Update: November deadline for JobKeeper disclosures for listed companies
Australian listed companies will soon be required to make market disclosures of any JobKeeper payments they received during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Treasury Laws Amendment (2021 Measures No. 2) Bill 2021 was passed by Parliament on 2 September 2021 and commenced on 14 September. The Government supported an amendment in Schedule 3 of the Bill moved by One Nation that requires listed companies to disclose to the market any JobKeeper payments received and any voluntary repayments made – by as early as 13 November 2021.
