Hi everyone,

We've put together a range of articles on our Help site that covers everything you need to know about JobKeeper with Reckon Accounts Business.

I'd highly recommend checking it out including the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for info on how/when to use tiers.

    Hi guys, I've regularly attended Clayton's webinars and have all recordings and slides etc, however I have confused myself with reporting for Jobkeeper 2.1 and just need some advice for clarity please!

    I have a payrun to do today, 30th September for the period 16-29 September. This therefore crosses into the beginning of Jobkeeper 2.1 by one day.

    So even though they are getting paid today, the majority of the period they worked fell within Jobkeeper 1.0, so are we eligible for the $1500, or just for the $1200 (or $750)?

    Therefore, am I adding the Jobkeeper start code for FN14 - and the Tier addition/s - to this pay run, or in the next one??? (30 Sept - 13 Oct, paid on 14th Oct).

    Any clarity someone can provide would be much appreciated.

    I made sure I only processed 26 Jobkeeper pays during the last 6 months. I am not ready to pay the next round yet but I believe if you are you just continue on using the new pay items, Tier one and tier 2, no need for FN14 unless it’s someone who is only starting in that fortnight

    Agree with Kris .....

    • It's the PAYMENT date that's important, rather than the period it relates to 
    • The FN number (Allowance) should only be used to notify the ATO of  employee STARTING or FINISHING JK
    • JK 2 requires initial "Tier 1" or "Tier 2" Allowance notifier only (eg in the same way as the "START FNXX" Allowance notifiers were required for JK 1)

    Hi there,

    I am using Reckons Accounts Premier Edition 2020, and kindly advice as how to add JK-TIER1 for each employee for the new pay run.

    It’s an allowance you need to look at the webinar slides, the same as when you entered the allowances for Jobkeeper 1
