Working director/trustee of a business JobKeeper payment

Would anyone be able to advise how to process JobKeeper payments for a working director/trustee of an eligible company that has not been paid through payroll previously?

Re: Working director/trustee of a business JobKeeper payment

An eligible business participant needs to complete a 'JobKeeper nomination notice for eligible business participants" form.

The JobKeeper payment is paid directly to the business, not to the non-employee business participant.

Hi Wendy,

 

I am hoping you may have some advice on an issue i have in MYOB. When nominating one of my job keeper employees i had accidently clicked the wrong staff member below and didnt realise this until after i had clicked "notify the ato" no when trying to undo this and allocate the correct person it just keeps reverting to what i done the first time like you cant change it??

 I still do not understand how we can apply if we have only been paid by a trust distribution not through payroll

Please refer to this link for an eligible business participant whose business has been affected by the coronavirus:

 

https://www.ato.gov.au/Forms/JobKeeper-nomination-notice-for-eligible-business-participants---exclud...

 

The relevant from may be downloaded from that link.

 

Once paid, the JobKeeper amount is paid to the business entity, not the business participant.

I am the director and I have completed the Jobkeeper Nomination (but I do not need to send to ATO).

 

If the Jobkeeper payment is made directly to the Company and not the director - this means, there is no payroll involved and the company receives $1500 but does not pay it forward.

Thanks Sue, maybe I'm a little blonde atm but once the form is filled out how do I notify the ATO to pay the business?

Natasha, from what I know:

You log into MYGOVID for your company, on LH side choose Manage employees, then choose Jobkeeper enrol.

I had no employees, so put 0 in that question, and then follow the rest of the prompts which states you have checked eligibility etc (same as what is on the form).

Once completed, this will prompt the ATO to pay the money to the Company.

I also rang the ATO this morning and they confirmed this is correct. 

I will then have to talk to my accountant to determine how to then pay the director.

You do not need to set the director up in MYOB payroll.

Until the 1st payment comes through - not sure if this is all correct.
