  • Monthly reporting for JobKeeper payments

    If you have enrolled for the JobKeeper Payment and identified your eligible employees, you need to make a business monthly declaration to the ATO. Your registered tax professional can also do this on your behalf.

    You will be able to do this from the 1st to the 14th day of each month, to receive reimbursements for the payments you have made to your employees in the previous month. The earlier this step is completed from the 1st of each month; the sooner businesses will be reimbursed for JobKeeper fortnights for that month.

    As part of this declaration, you need to:

    • ensure you've paid your eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) in each JobKeeper fortnight you're claiming for.
    • reconfirm your eligible employees and your contact and financial details.
    • provide information on your current and projected GST turnover, this isn't a retest of your eligibility – it will indicate to us how your business is progressing.

    If your eligible employees change or leave your employment, you need to notify us through this monthly declaration so we can adjust your JobKeeper payments.

    To lodge your monthly business declaration:

    • log in to our ATO business portal using myGov ID or ATO online services through myGov
    • make sure you complete this step each month that you want to claim payments until the end of the program.

    We have step-by-step guides to help you complete your business monthly declaration available at ato.gov.au/jobkeeperguides
