If all you do is share trading as a business and have been effected by this economy, can you get JobKeeper Payments? Let's say someone is trading shares always under their personal name for a number of years. This financial year they've been hit badly and have been making big losses. I'm going with "yes" based on the info here and the quoted text below: JobKeeper Payment for employers and employees | business.gov.au "The JobKeeper Payment is a temporary scheme open to businesses impacted by the coronavirus. The JobKeeper Payment will also be available to the self-employed." "Not-for-profit entities (including charities) and self-employed individuals (businesses without employees) that meet the turnover tests that apply for businesses are eligible to apply for JobKeeper Payments."
