  • Updated 3 months ago
IF THE PAY PERIOD IS  30/03/2020-12/04/2020, BUT THE PAYMENT DATE IS 16/04/2020, WHAT START PERIOD SHOULD I PUT? I THINK IT SHOULD BE JOBKEEPER-START-FN01, AM I RIGHT?

Fortnight 1 includes any payments you ACTUALLY made in that period.  In your example, the payment on 16 April is part of Fortnight 2.  You will need to decide whether you pay the employees for Fortnight 1 and do a top up before the end of April

Isn't it in relation to the period in question, not when the amount is actually paid.  So I would think that YanFang is FN01

It is when it is paid.    On the ATO website it talks about PAID not accrued.   

Each month you must:
  • Ensure you have paid your eligible employees at least $1,500 per eligible employee per fortnight.

so for the next payroll I do not need to include the JOBKEEPER-START-FNXX, JUST INCLUDE JOBKEEPER-TOPUP IS OK?

Hi Yangfang,
You will only need to use START-FNXX once to indicate the start of employee JobKeeper payment on pay run then lodge via STP.
You will not need to include START-FNXX for the employee on the next pay run.
