JobKeeper

What's the best way to record a re-hire of an employee who's eligible for JobKeeper?

 

JobKeeper top ups / claims were made for the employee from April 2020 to December 2020, when the employee ceased employment.  They're being re-hired now so there would be top up / claim for FN26.

 

Our approach is to create a new employee card and in the Payroll Reporting Centre and enter the First JobKeeper Fortnight as FN26.

 

Would there be any problems with that / is there a better way, please?

Re: JobKeeper

Hi @Geoff-AHI 

 

Typically you would reinstate the employee in AccountRight and in the Payroll reporting centre: Reinstating an employee. This keeps all payroll information for the employee in one record with the ATO for STP.

 

Once you've reinstated the employee you can notify their new start fortnight and tier in the JobKeeper payments tab. 

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Re: JobKeeper

Thanks, Tracey.

 

We thought that reinstatement would be wrong because the employee wasn't employed by the employer from January to mid-March.  We saw it as a re-hire.

Re: JobKeeper

Hi @Geoff-AHI 

 

The ATO website says If you rehire an employee using the same payroll identifier, you can report the rehire date as the employee's start date. As such, you can follow the steps in that linked help article to reinstate the employee.

 

 These links to the ATO website have more information:

Commencing and ceasing employment

Your eligible employees

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Re: JobKeeper

Thanks Tracey.

 

We've recorded a payroll for the employee with a new payroll identifier, new start date & FN26 for the first JobKeeper fortnight and reported through STP.

 

Do you think we should try to reverse that and use the old payroll identifier or go ahead with the new one?

Re: JobKeeper

Hi @Geoff-AHI 

 

Did you create a new employee card? Or change the Card ID on the old employee card?

Cheers,

Re: JobKeeper

Hi @Geoff-AHI 

 

The ATO do allow two employment records for the one employee so, as you've already created a second record, I'd check with them to make sure that's ok going forward.

 

If you need to change back to one record let me know and I'll be happy to assist you with that process.

 

Please let me know how you go.

Re: JobKeeper

Hi Tracey

 

I checked with the ATO (Melissa, who checked with specialist(s)) who said that the two records are OK, thanks.
