For most, your on-going JobKeeper compliance will be reported through STP (Single Touch Payroll).  It is important to note that if you do not set up your payroll correctly as outlined in these links, your STP may be rejected.  The ATO will be cross-referencing your JobKeeper eligibility with STP, so any errors may deem you ineligible or hold up payments to you, so you can see it is really important to get it right from the outset.

For further instructions on setting up JobKeeper, we recommend contacting your software provider.
