Hi everyone,

As you're aware, we're all going through some incredibly challenging and turbulent times at the moment. Hopefully you're all staying safe and our thoughts are with everyone affected.

With the Government's recent announcement of the new Jobseeker payments, we know you'll have a lot of questions around how to handle these in your Reckon software.
We are in discussions with the ATO around the specific reporting requirements for these new payments.

There is a fair bit of detail around this and we're still working through these at the moment.

We'll have more information coming on this topic very soon so please stay tuned.

Hi everyone.

The ATO has called another meeting for software developers to discuss JobKeeper tomorrow afternoon. As such, it is likely we will not be able to provide final guidance around this until later this week.

We certainly appreciate there is a sense of urgency around this topic at the moment for everyone however we, like all other software providers, want to make sure we get this right before we can tell you how to configure your software.

More information to follow. Stay tuned.

Hi everyone,
We are currently formalising & reviewing our official documentation and processes in regard to JobKeeper payments for each of our payroll software. We'll have full documentation on setup and processing to share with you all and answer any questions you may have following this.
There is a further meeting scheduled in regard to this on Monday next week and pending the outcome of this we're confident we'll be able to provide guidance to you all to get this underway.

We really appreciate your patience so far, I know that everyone wants to get started on this ASAP.

I'll have more updates and information to follow here as soon as they come to hand.
