Video Conference with James O’Halloran Deputy Commissioner, Economic Stimulus Branch Australian Taxation Office
In October 2020 the Federal Government announced an economic lifeline for Australians hurt by COVID-19 with employers to receive more than $10,000 over a year.
The initiative is known as the JobMaker Hiring Credit Scheme, & designed to boost the chances of employment for young people.
The Scheme is a payment-based program to incentivise employers to hire people aged under 35.
It’s designed to try and boost the employment prospects of those that were hurt hardest by COVID-19 – think part-time retail assistants, bar staff, waiters and more.
At this conference James explained the Scheme and how it will provide as economic stimulus, accelerating growth in the employment of young people during the COVID-19 economic recovery.
Following his presentation, the Deputy Commissioner answered a number of questions from members about the Scheme. For more information please seek link https://lnkd.in/gKrWrMF
