If you are eligible for JobKeeper payments and haven’t registered/requested us to register please do so as soon as possible. If you are unsure please contact us. If you haven’t enrolled, the time to enrol for the initial JobKeeper periods has been extended from 30 April 2020 until 31 May 2020.
Those of you who have registered can now submit the monthly declaration (for April) to ATO. The declaration requires the following information;
- Employees date of birth
- Employees tax file number
- The fortnights you are claiming
If employers wish to apply for the JobKeeper Payment, they must first have paid their employees for each JobKeeper fortnight they plan to claim for. The first two eligible fortnights are 30 March to 12 April and 13 April to 26 April. They must make two fortnightly payments of at least $1,500 per fortnight (before tax), or one payment of at least $3,000 for the month, before 8 May, to each listed employee.
