Jobkeeper how to approach past weeks entitlements

  • Updated 3 months ago
Are you able to tell us how to approach/ "fix" the payroll for the fortnight that has already passed?
We pay our staff weekly
Some staff will need the "top up".
  •   Do you go back and amend those payweeks? or do you have to do a new payrun with the top portion only?
  • Others will be entitled to the jobkeeper for past weeks for whihc they have not yet received any payments - so do we just do a payrun for them now with the "Jobkeeper Start FN01"

Hi Barbara & Maria,
If you've already sent through STP submissions for these payruns then you'll need to go back to your Reckon software and edit the payruns to include the correct JobKeeper pay items. You'll then need to create and send through an STP Update Event.

Thanks for the reply.... 
I would also like to clarify, if the drop in revenue is happening from May can we go back and claim from 30/3 ? FN01 or are we limited from fortnight FN03
And, we pay weekly, so is it ok if we submit $750 per week?

It is best to check with the ATO but the general rule is that the employees become eligible when the 30% revenue reduction occurs, so if this is not occuring until May it is likely the employees are not eligible until FN03

Please discuss with the ATO and/or your accountant for your individual needs. This is generalised advice.
