Job keeper Tier

How do I notify ATO that an employee is remaining on Job Keeper on Tier 1?

Do I have to use the Tier category for the wages or continue using the Job Keeper Top Up category?

Thank you

Hi Mrs Ecka, 

 

Thank you for reaching out. As per the instructions "Assign JobKeeper tier for all eligible employees. This MUST be reported for ALL eligible employees (new and existing) and only needs to be reported once (unless a tier has been reported incorrectly). If this action is not completed, you will not be reimbursed by the ATO. If you are already enrolled in JobKeeper and eligible for the extension, you do this in your business monthly declaration in November". 

 

You can then continue to add the applicable top up to each Pay Run as applicable. 

 

Please see here for the full details. 

 

Thanks,

Thanks Rebecca

I created the category for Tier 1 but in the payroll paid the $s as Job Keeper Top Up. This is where I think I may have made a mistake

I don't do the ATO declaration at MyGov. Is that where it should be done, or do I have to reverse the wages and redo them with Tier 1 $.

My principal does the MyGov side and said the name is greyed out so he can't claim the job keeper for the one and only employee.

Thanks Mrs Ecka. When you say you created the pay category did you do this manually or use the one listed under Actions > Add JobKeeper Payment > Allocate Tier? 

You will need to ensure this step is done before any JobKeeper top ups are added to the pay run. 

 

If you have not done this, yes I would recommend correcting the Pay Run and then doing an Update Event for STP which will then reflect in the ATO Portal. 

 

Thanks,

Thanks again

I have under categories under earnings

JOBKEEPER-TOPUP and JOBKEEPER-TIER1

Do I have to enter the employees $600 under Jobkeeper Topup or Tier 1

or do I have to just put in $0.01c as we did on the original FN01

I am quite sure that I added the Tier 1 on the first pay run but with no value

I have just changed the last 4 pay runs, changed the payment from Top Up to Tier 1 and the values are all the same, but I still don't know if it has registered with ATO because the reports just show under allowances. I think I will have to ask the accountant to check with the ATO.  Thanks for your help

Hi Mrs Ecka, 

 

The Tier 1 category needs to only have 1 hour at $0.01 entered whereas the Top Up category is where you enter your payment/top up amount. 

 

The full instructions can be found here but yes, I would recommend having your Accountant double check that everything is set up correctly. 

 

Thanks,

Hi Rebecca, 

 

If I forgot assign the tiers in Oct pay run, I only assign the tiers in Nov pay run would that be ok?

 

Or Should I reverse all Oct pay run and re-created the Oct pay run with tier 1 assigned?

 

Thanks

 

Regards

Hi LiliZ, 

 

To make changes to a pay run you can unlock it and include the job keeper tiers to the employee's payroll. You can do so via the link below:

 

  1. Click on the required pay run in the Pay Runs screen;
  2. Click on the Pay Run Actions button then choose the Unlock option

 

After this you can then select the employee to add in the job keeper tier to confirm these details in the payrun, please see the steps below to get this done: 

 

  1. Select the Employee, this will open up their payroll information
  2. Next you will want to select the green Actions button and select add Job Keeper payment. 
  3. You will see the drop option to select the job keeper category, and select Job Keeper tier, then select in the bottom drop down the relevant tier that applies to the employee. 
  4. Lastly, please select the save option, then scroll up to finalise the pay run and it's details.

 

By making changes to the pay run, you will need to then run an Update Event to update the ATO on the new changes. Please use the link here to see the steps involved in submitting this type of single touch payroll event. 

 

If you are unable to unlock the pay run in October to include the Job keeper tiers it would be best to to run an ad hoc pay run which will involve backdating pay periods to allow you to submit the job keeper details. To change the start date of the Pay Period please adjust the ending date. 

 

For details on how to run this type of pay run, please use the guide by clicking here for steps. Once you've created this backdated pay run, you can use the same steps above to add, finalise and submit the details to the ATO. 

 

Hope this helps,
