entering Jobkeeper payments

If an employee is not working do they get paid the full job keeper allowance or jsut the top up amount between their normal gross pay and $750. Sorry I have only just found out that one of my clients is on job keeper. I have entered it as normal wages and a top up amount which has generated superannuation. They saynthey don't have to pay super on jobkeeper,which is correct on the top up amount. The employee has been working on an off since beginning of August when they started on Jobkeeper. I would appreciate any help.

Hi linesvic, 

 

With JobKeeper payments, an employee would receive $750 per fortnight for those working fewer than 80 hours in any reference period, with the potential top-up to replace their hourly pay if they have not been able to complete their normal working total hours. 

 

It is important before assigning the JobKeeper Top-Ups to the employee that you apply a JobKeeper Start-Date, which can be done with the steps below:

  1. Open the Pay Run
  2. Select the relevant Employee
  3. In the bottom right select "Actions" button is displayed. Click on Actions , then select Add JobKeeper Payment
  4. Add JobKeeper Start, based on the relevant period of the Pay Run. 

Since the JobKeeper was rolled out, it's also important to process the payments through our own system created Pay Category, which can be done through the same steps as above, but instead select Add Top-Up, which will have the correct tax settings already applied.
