JOBKEEPER-START-FNXX Pay Item - Use one per fortnight?

  • Question
  • Updated 2 months ago
Can you please clarify - for WEEKLY pay runs, once we work out that we are able to claim the JobKeeper payment for an eligible employee, so we have to add the pay item JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 in the pay run which falls in the first week of the FN01 fortnight date, we don't have to put this code again in the second weeks pay run correct?  Because that is still within the first Fortnight's date.  Then when we do the payrun in the 3rd week which falls within the FN02 dates, we then have to put the JOBKEEPER-START-FN02 in that weeks payrun?

Oh my goodness! Thanks for asking Carol.  I need to know too, as I pay weekly and the Webinar didn't clarify this. Hope someone knows? I wonder if we have to update the first payrun for April with FN01?

JOBKEEPER-START-FNXX is only used once per employee and is used to denote the fortnight in which the employer first claims JobKeeper in respect of the employee.   The pay frequency is quite independent of this.

Thanks Bruce. So if I do our weekly pay tomorrow can I use FN01? Will ATO work out that it's from 30 March?

Update! Or do I go back to the first fortnight in April and update that?

@John...and any topup that may have related to previous weeks/fortnights
 can be paid tomorrow too, if applicable and can be reported in tomorrow's pay run as a "topup" payment?   We don't have to go back and amend previous weeks pay run right?

Correct Carol, using the correct flag FNXX for whatever the start fortnight was.

Make any top ups that are required for fortnights 1 & 2 in tomorrows pay run.   For future fortnights make the top up in the second week of the fortnight.

OK, thanks everyone ( John, Bruce, and Carol for asking).  I'll do my normal weekly pay tomorrow with FN01. Fingers crossed it's the right way to go.
