Re: Are Jobkeeper TopUp Payments PAYG tax exempt?

Hi @Apogee 

 

Thanks for your post. I found this information on the ATO website:

 

If your eligible employees earn less than the JobKeeper amount (gross salary inclusive of PAYG withholding) per fortnight, you must pay them at least the JobKeeper amount in each fortnight to claim the JobKeeper payment. This is a ‘top up’ of their salary or wages and will ensure you remain eligible.

 

This does indicate that JobKeeper topup amounts are included in PAYG calculations, however, if you are not sure I do recommend checking with the ATO.

 

Paying your eligible employees 

 

Please let me know if you need further help.
