Neota Logic, creators of the world’s leading automation platform, announced today that international law firm, Herbert Smith Freehills, together with its taxation affiliate Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills have launched the JobKeeper Navigation Application, built in Neota’s no-code platform.
The JobKeeper Navigation App helps businesses understand the new Australian JobKeeper payment scheme. It indicates whether the user’s business is eligible to receive any payments, and provides tailored suggestions as to next steps in claiming those payments.
The Federal Government’s A$130 billion JobKeeper payment is a scheme designed to support individuals and businesses affected by the significant impact resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this scheme, eligible entities will be reimbursed a fixed amount of A$1,500 per fortnight (before tax), for each eligible employee, for up to six months.
Susanna Kipping, Head of Legal Operations, Process & Automation at Herbert Smith Freehills, commented, ‘We recognise that it’s a challenging time for businesses and we are working hard to find new ways to look after their interests.
‘The Neota Logic platform is an important tool in this effort, enabling us to quickly build applications to make important information far more accessible to our clients; in this case, to help businesses navigate rapidly emerging and ever evolving information that can be overwhelming and confusing, but for many survival is dependent on fast access to these entitlements.
‘The platform also enables us to easily update the application as and when the government releases new guidance, meaning that our clients can have confidence that what they are hearing from us is accurate and complete’.
Kim Massana, CEO at Neota Logic, said, ‘This is an unsettling time for everyone. Guidelines are changing rapidly, and businesses have many questions. It’s great to see Herbert Smith Freehills using the Neota platform to provide businesses with tools designed to deliver much-needed support’.
