Enrolling for jobkeeper for staff via reckon software part way through the month, i.e pay run periods are f/n ended 12/04 and 26/04, 12/04 has already been processed, enrolled in jobkeeper on portal, and then 26/04 payroll processed with XX as 01. Have I selected the JOBKEEPER-START-FNXX number 01 correctly even though it is actually the 2nd f/n for jobkeeper payments?

Hi Nat, 

JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 should added to f/n ended 12/04.

This the fortnight that you want START receiving Jobkeeper from ATO.

So go and amend (unlock the payrun) add JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 to that payrun and re-lodge STP.

The re-lodged STP will replace the original STP. Both will still show in GovConnect and that is OK.

Thank you Linda
When re-lodging, do i just lodge to STP as per normal or do i select/tick anything to make sure that it is different or replacing a previous STP lodgment?

Also, if all employees are receiving more than the jobkeeper $1500 p/ftnight, am i correct in saying that i only need to lodge the start to STP as a replacement file and all pay runs from 13/04 onwards are as normal?

with employees getting the top-up, am i deleting & redoing that employees pay to include the top-up?
and is this also lodged as a normal STP (nothing special ticked).

Hi Nat, 

Q1 You should tick update event at both in Reckon and at GovConnect.

Q2 start to STP as a replacement  Update Event file

Q3 you can delete and re-do then you should tick update event at both in Reckon and at GovConnect.

or

as previously suggested amend (unlock the payrun) add JOBKEEPER-TOPUP to that payrun and re-lodge STP  tick update event at both in Reckon and at GovConnect.

or

You can do a new payrun with just the JOBKEEPER-TOPUP amounts, adj the tax to = $192 combined total of the 2 pays and lodge STP as you normally would - nothing to tick. 

Sorry but you do have several options.

Sorry Linda
Another quick one, if the pay period starts before 30/03 but ends between 30/03 & 12/04 and is paid between 30/3 - 12/03?

for example, pay period 28/03 - 03/04 paid on 06/04

will this be the first pay period for jobkeeper?
