    Create your own employee nomination notice

    You may choose to create your own employee nomination notice instead of using the JobKeeper employee nomination notice.

    Some practical reasons to create your own employee nomination notice include:

    • you have many employees and it is not practical to have each employee complete and return the ATO version to you, or
    • you prefer to use your own portal or communication channel to get this information.


    The following information must be included in your version of a JobKeeper employee nomination notice:

    • your business details  
      • business name
      • Australian business number of the entity
    • the employee’s details  
      • full name
      • date of birth
      • street address
      • contact phone number and/or email address.


    To complete the nomination notice, employees must confirm they:

    • agree to be nominated as an eligible employee of the employer listed – for the purposes of the JobKeeper Payment scheme
    • meet the eligibility requirements.

    Employees must also ensure they:

    • have not agreed to be nominated by any other employer, business or religious institution, and
    • have not given another entity, or the ATO a nomination form for the purpose of the JobKeeper Payment scheme


    • before 1 July, stopped being an employee of their previous employer (or actively engaged as an eligible business participant), and
    • have not since resumed employment with their previous employer, and
    • have not restarted being actively engaged in the business with which they had previously agreed to be nominated.

    Your employees' signature is not required by the ATO but can be requested by you.

    Employees can submit their nomination notice to their employer:

    • through internal business process – for example, a business HR portal, or
    • by their own form of communication channel – for example, email.
