You only need to use the JOBKEEPER-Start pay category once and only need to use JOB-KEEPER-finish if you finish before the current planned end of JobKeeper (so currently there isn't a need to use finish if you are claiming all 13 fortnights).

ATO says we have to report eligible employees by 4th of May. If my projected sales decreased from May and I wish to claim jobkeeper payment from 3rd period   (27 April to 10 May). 

 

I am using monthly payrun.

 

In this situation,  why question is

 

- Do I have to add JOBKEEPER-START-03 in my payrun on 30 April 2020?

or

- I have to add JOBKEEPER-START-03 in my 31 May payrun?

or 

- Do I still need to add JOBKEEPER-START-01 on 30 April 2020?

Hi, 

 

You will only need to add the JobKeeper Start Pay Category from the date that your employee is eligible, e.g. If you are first paying your employee the JobKeeper payment on the 31st May you will add FN03 for that employee into that pay run. 

If you are needing to ensure that your employees are backdated for April, this is where you will need to add the Start Fortnight into the current pay runs.

Yes I read that article and it is all ready to lodge.

 

So when I lodge STP for my April salary I have to put JOBKEEPER-Start-FN03 if I will pay to my employees from May 2020?

From the information we have, the understanding is that you need to ensure you have registered with the ATO by the end of April.

 

The Start Fortnight is then added to the applicable pay run, e.g. Pay date 31st May equates to FN05 so that Pay Category is added to that Pay Run. 

The only time you would need to add the FNXX to a pay run does not correlate to that date range, is if you are needing to indicate you are back paying the JobKeeper payment. 

If you are not sure on what suits your needs, please contact the ATO as they will be able to give you the most accurate advice.

I apologise you have not been able to get a clear answer. The process is quite new and as you can appreciate, we want to ensure you are compliant with the ATO's expectations. 

As I mentioned though, the understanding is that you are registered before the end of April and then add the start pay category into the applicable pay run. 

 

Thanks,

Thanks everyone for your comments,

 

Can I please clarify:

 

- I have already processed the STP pay runs for APRIL and have NOTincluded the JOBKEEPER code in the pay run (it was already done)

- I am eligible from MARCH 30 to receive Jobkeeper and have enrolled with ATO from MARCH.

- How do i document this on MAY pay run?

i.e. If I add JOBKEEPER START to May pay run, does that reflect eligibility from March 30 as required?

 

I see you can also manually add employees in the business portal from MAY 4th

 

Thank you!!!!

Hi there,

 

As per the steps to set up and manage JobKeeper: 'JobKeeper Start is used to notify the ATO when you're claiming the subsidy from; it's the name on the pay category that's informing the ATO, not the pay period it's reported in'.

 

The Start FN is based off the date you first paid the employee the JobKeeper Payment. So as an example, if you started paying your employee JobKeeper on March 30th and therefore your fortnight Start category was FN01, you could put this in the following payrun - it's not the pay period that matters so much as the category name itself.

 

Please reach out below if you have any more questions.

I did not add a start or finish date on an employee's pay run - will the ATO automatically pick the dates up from the dates of the fortnightly pay period that they are being paid for?
