Hi All - Just a quick question - I am confused about the FNXX Start and Finish 
So are we reporting these as an allowance line x1  in the week we start and then do an allowance line x1 when we end? or are we doing an allowance each week stating which week we are claiming for?

 My understanding is the ATO want a start point (JOBSEEKER-START-FNXX) XX being the reporting period it falls in. I imagine they will pick up this tag and set the subsidy payments from that point. If you’re bringing employees back on from standoffs, and they miss the first fortnight, you will put it in the next reporting period FN02, and so on.
Ive uploaded 2 files, the second you should remove the START-FNXX line, as it may well conflict with the previous point you wanted to start.
Employee's that resign or are no longer employed, but have been receiving JBK, should have the line item allocated JOBSEEKER-FINISH-FNXX (XX being the reporting period they ceased employment).
Important to remember the JBK reporting periods are fortnightly.
FN01 30/03/20 - 12/04/20
FN02 13/04/20 - 26/04/20

Also, remove the JOBSEEKER-START-FNXX from allowances on each payroll after you have set it once, otherwise it might conflict with the start date.

Just adding to Cass's reply above, see below for the JobKeeper reporting periods -

Hi Su

 

The FNXX Allowances are simply “notifiers” to inform the ATO of the first & last Pays that the employee is JK eligible (& therefore when you as the employer are also eligible for the reimbursement of that)

These Allowances have no other purpose than that.

 

You use the applicable START-FNXX Allowance on the employee’s relevant pay to indicate that is the FIRST pay they are eligible.  You use the applicable FINISH-FNXX Allowance on the employee’s LAST eligible JK Pay (if the employee is still employed by you after the JK program period finishes (at this stage, 27/09/20) then the last Pay prior to that date will include the FINISH-FNXX Allowance.

These FNXX Allowances do NOT need to stay on the employee’s default Pay record & can be deleted off the Paycheque if they appear.

 

The TOPUP Allowance is the one that will likely need to be repeatedly used – If an employee’s pay is less than $ 1,500 p/fn. 

In that case, that TOPUP Allowance can be added to the employee’s default record.

Thank you I have been searching for this answer to my question.  I have been carrying over the Jobkeeper-Start-FN01 in subsequent pays.  Should I delete the one's and re-upload to STP do you think?  I'm hoping this won't affect our payments.  I did do the 1c entry on the very first week.

Hi Jo

 

Reckon have advised you can leave the FN01 on, however I think it’s best to remove it to avoid any possible confusion about when JK first commences.

You don’t need to worry about changing the ones already lodged but personally, I’d remove it going forward.

 

The 1c won’t affect anything - That was an early workaround because the FNXX allowances initially weren’t displaying without having a $ value against them (which has since been rectified)
