  • Doesn't Need an Answer
Come on Reckon people- I need to procees the Top up payments for my employees that are eligible for job keeper but currently earn under $1500 pfn. I am told that I must do this via my STP. Whilst MYOB & XERO have this ready to go, Reckon does not. The problem is I must complete these TOP UP Payments to staff before the end of April to be eligible for reimbursement from the government in May. You need to set up a category for “job keeper top up” (similar to categories like overtime or personal leave or annual leave), and have it so that the tax department can realise that it is us the employer paying the “top up”. This must also give us the option of NOT paying super on the “top up” as we do not have to. As I said this needs to happen urgently. What is your company doing and What day this week will you have an answer by? This is very very urgent you guys!!

Hi Andrew,
I received the instructions on how to do this earlier this morning, via email.
Have you checked the email account you nominated to Reckon?

Hi Di- Thanks for your reply and no I had not received the email you talk of, otherwise I wouldn’t have written the post in frustration. Thank you very much for your reply and the links- I will get onto it immediately and thanks to reckon for hopefully solving this problem. Like everything in my life if I had of just waited another 24 hours it would’ve all been fixed. Ha ha. Regards Andrew

No worries Andrew,
I asked about your email as a prompt only, in case you'd changed your email address and Reckon didn't have it.  Didn't mean to add to your stress, which I understand.
I've read through the information and it appears to be in line with other info I've gathered from various sources.
Good luck with setting it up.
Di

Thanks Di, 
Yes I'll work through the notes re setup. 
Lets hope the Gov't doesn't knock me back on any that I top up.  A couple of my employees lie in a ? Grey area.  I'd hate to pay a large Top Up & have the Gov't say No.  
Thanks Andrew :-)
