Bedding company Australian Comfort Group is alleged to have deliberately depressed monthly revenue in order to become eligible for up to $11 million in wage subsidies under the JobKeeper scheme. The Australian Taxation Office will investigate the allegations. The Australian Comfort Group has claimed that the person who has made the allegations was only with the company for a short period of time and has now lodged a claim under the Fair Work Act that includes compensation of $200,000. The company contends that any investigation of its eligibility to claim the JobKeeper payment "will stand up to scrutiny".
