We know the members of the International Forwarders & Customs Brokers Association have been suffering from the pandemic via an increase in costs, specifically in air and sea freight and other charges. This has meant that the profit margins have stayed the same or significantly been reduced. Unfortunately, the JobKeeper test is based on GST turnover which means a lot of the members are not eligible for JobKeeper.
