The JobMaker Hiring Credit is here and businesses can claim payments for new positions they create until 6 October 2021.
The first claim period for the JobMaker Hiring Credit opened on 1 February 2021 and closes on 30 April 2021.
To be able to claim JobMaker Hiring Credit payments during this claim period, you must register and meet the eligibility requirements before it ends.
To submit your claim:
- register – using ATO online services or the Business portal, or through your registered tax or BAS agent
- nominate your eligible additional employees – by running payroll events through your Single Touch Payroll (STP)-enabled software
- claim payments – enter your headcount and payroll for the JobMaker period, and we’ll calculate your claim amount based on the information you provide.
You can register at any time until the scheme ends, but when you register will affect the periods you can claim for.
