3 common errors clients should check before 8th May

Hi everyone, 


The deadline for April JobKeeper payments is fast approaching (8th May).  Although you can continue to enrol for Jobkeeper until 31 May, you must ensure that your employees have been paid at least $1500 per fortnight from 30 March to 26 April by the 8 May to be eligible to claim the payment for the first two fortnights of April – FN01 and FN02.

If you're applying for JobKeeper, we strongly encourage you to check how you’ve set up JobKeeper payments in MYOB, paying careful attention to the common mistakes we’ve identified in our data.

Please complete these checks before 8th May to avoid missing out on April JobKeeper payments, using the links below for more detailed information on how to get it right.



1. Check JobKeeper start dates


Check that you've chosen the correct First JobKeeper fortnight for each employee based on their first eligible JobKeeper payment date.

2. Check JobKeeper wage category set-up


The Wages Name and ATO Reporting Category you use for the JobKeeper category must be set up strictly as shown below for the ATO to reimburse you.

3. Check payment amounts


Ensure you've paid the minimum amount required for JobKeeper ($1500 per fortnight before tax) for each employee. You can check through the Payroll Activity Report.
