Setting Up JobKeeper in your payroll software
IMPORTANT: Step by Step Guide to Setting up JobKeeper Payments in your payroll software
Enrolments for the new “JobKeeper” wage subsidy opened yesterday. There are a few eligibility requirements you may not know about, so lets take a moment to run through them here:
Before Setting up your payroll software
- You have determined who are your eligible employees
They have completed & returned the JobKeeper Employee Nomination Notice to you
(Don't have this form? Click here to download a copy)
- You have enrolled for JobKeeper with the ATO
Once these steps are done, you are now able to set up JobKeeper in your payroll system.
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.
