Has the Essential STP included the JobKeeper functionality yet?
If yes, doesn anyone know how to update each eligible employee in the software?
Basically I have enrolled in the job keeper package and was advised to check if the software has this functionality yet?
Yes it is. MYOB support notes are available here
MYOB Support notes:
I use AccountEdge Pro V18.5, I have read all the notes for Job Keeper MYOB on the forums, for the MYOB AccountRight (as nothing on AccountEdge MYOB help for Jobkeeper), and a few posts said the concept was the same. So I did setup JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 and did do the pay run with the $0.01 against this payroll category today etc as per the help. But I am unsure now if ACCOUNTEDGE STP submitted this new detail as I expected to see a YTP for this "Allowance-Other" or JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 in the STP report on MYOB, but I can't see anything different in this weeks report to last weeks.
Of course I am only a user, but can you tell me if there is something I should see in the reporting to tell if it sent ATO the JOBKEEPER info? I half thought that maybe it lost the $0.01 decimal place, and perhaps a $1 amount might work?
OK, any help would be great appreciated.
Does anyone have any information on entering jobkeeper in Account Edge Pro V18 STP - using a Mac .
I have just been told by MYOB online chat as follows:
Hi there Sally, welcome to LiveChat. Thanks for the background. I do apologise for any confusion, however can confirm that these payments are handled the same way in AccountEdge as they are in AccountRight.
We have a guide here on how to set up and manage Job Keeper payments:

we have already processed and paid our weekly and forthnightly employees for the entire month of April using STP without the job keeper start -FN01 code.
what is the best way to resolve this? considering our next pay run is not till the 6th of May which is after the 4th of May?
You nominate the start fortnight as JOBKEEPER-START-FN01. This is a once off transition to allow JK Payments or TopUp or backpay for pays to be added to any payroll you may have already paid if you have already paid all of April then the best way to deal with this is to run a NIL payroll for each elgible employee ensuring that you follow the same guidance for using that code as per the MYOB support notes
I use Accountedge Pro v18.5 on mac also. Just to let you know - I found using $0.01 for the JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 was a problem and Accountedge didnt pass it through in STP to ATO
I found that I had to use $1 instead and then it passed through correctly and showed in the Payroll report and output logs. I believe AccoundtEDGE truncated or rounded $0.01 to zero and hence why I did $1
Thanks for your email that makes perfect sense.
