Changes To JobKeeper: How To Mitigate The Impacts Using Factoring Finance

Jul 22 2020

The JobKeeper wage subsidy will continue until March 2021 but will reduce from $1,500 to $1,200 a fortnight after September, and then reduce again to $1,000 a fortnight for the first three months of 2021. For people working fewer than 20 hours a week, they will receive $750 a fortnight, then reducing to $650 a fortnight along the same time line.

Approximately one million Australians have lost their jobs as a result of the pandemic, while small and medium businesses with their low cash reserves, higher fixed costs and restricted access to lending, are struggling to stay afloat.

The latest ABS Business Indicators survey observes that three in ten (30%) small businesses (i.e. those with 0-19 persons employed) reported that currently available cash on hand would support business operations for less than 3 months.

Businesses should look into alternative sources of finance such as factoring finance to prepare for the reduction in JobKeeper, and eventually when the tap is turned off.

Prepare a cash flow forecast

Cash flow is the movement of money in and out of your business. A positive cash flow means that there is more money coming in than what your business is spending. While a negative cash flow means there is more cash going out of your business, than coming in.

Negative cash flow is a major warning sign, especially during these uncertain times. A reliable and consistent cash flow forecast is critical to ensure your business can plan for any shortfall.

A cash flow forecast can also help your business to understand the source and certainty of your income and expenses, and what actions to take.

Taking advantage of unpaid invoices

With the economic instability, businesses are now experiencing slow payments from clients, in turn, creating a cash flow gap. Instead of waiting for clients to pay, businesses can cover this gap through factoring finance, and get paid in as quick as 4 hours.
