This update is for existing JobSaver applications. It does not apply to new applications.

The most important point about the reconfirmation process is the comparison year. For example, if the business was using FY2019 as the comparison year, the same year must be used to check for reconfirmation of eligibility.

To reconfirm, please choose one of the following methods.

Option 1: Same year, corresponding fortnight

If your initial comparison period was in 2019 or 2020, you must use the same year when you confirm your eligibility.

Use the fortnight from that year that corresponds to the current eligibility period.

For example:

  • In your JobSaver application, you compared 26 July to 8 August 2019 with 26 July to 8 August 2021.
  • To confirm your eligibility, compare 13 September to 26 September 2019 with 13 September to 26 September 2021.

In this example, you must use 2019 every time you confirm your eligibility.

Option 2: Same year, same comparison fortnight

If your initial comparison period was in 2019 or 2020, you must still use the same year when you confirm your eligibility.

However, using a corresponding fortnight (Option 1) may not show a decline in turnover. Reasons for this can include your business being affected by bushfires, floods, illness or other factors at that time.

If this is the case, you can use the same comparison fortnight you used in your application.

For example:

  • In your JobSaver application, you compared 26 July to 8 August 2019 with 26 July to 8 August 2021.
  • To confirm your eligibility, compare 26 July to 8 August 2019 with 13 September to 26 September 2021.

In this example, you must use 26 July to 8 August 2019 every time you confirm your eligibility.

Option 3: 12 June to 25 June 2021 as comparison period

If 12 June to 25 June 2021 was your initial comparison period, you must use this same period when you confirm your eligibility.

For example:

  • In your JobSaver application, you compared 12 June to 25 June 2021 with 26 July to 8 August 2021.
  • To confirm your eligibility, you must compare 12 June to 25 June 2021 with 13 September to 26 September 2021
