Monthly JobKeeper declarations

All businesses that have enrolled in the JobKeeper Scheme will need to make a monthly declaration to the ATO to ensure they continue to receive JobKeeper payments.

The monthly declaration must be made by the 14th day of each month to claim JobKeeper payments for the previous month.

It is important that to continue to be eligible for the scheme, that businesses ensure that they have paid their eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) in each JobKeeper fortnight they are claiming for.  Then declare monthly:

  • their eligible employees, including notifying if an eligible employee has changed or left employment; and
  • provide the current month GST turnover and projected GST turnover for the following month.

It is important to note that the turnover figures you provide are not a retest of the eligibility of the business.

The monthly declaration can be lodged through the ATO business portal or through STP-enabled software.  Alternatively, we can assist clients by lodging the monthly declaration on your behalf.
