  • JobMaker Hiring Credit – three simple steps

    The JobMaker Hiring Credit is available for employers who create new positions for eligible young people between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021.

    We are halfway through the JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme's first claim period, which runs from 1 February to 30 April 2021.

    To receive the JobMaker Hiring Credit payments during this claim period, you don't need to satisfy a fall in turnover test. All you need to do is complete three simple steps:

    • register – using ATO online services, Online services for business or the Business portal, or through your registered tax or BAS agent.
    • nominate your eligible additional employees – by running payroll events through your Single Touch Payroll (STP)-enabled software by 27 April 2021.
    • claim payments – using ATO online services, Online services for business or the Business portal, or through your registered tax or BAS agent.

    We have resources available, including a guide and a payment estimator to help you work out your payment.

    You can register at any time until the scheme ends, but you must register before the end of the claim period for the first JobMaker period you want to claim for.

    Check our website for information on eligibility and key dates.
