  • Claiming the JobMaker Hiring Credit

    3 February 2021

    The JobMaker Hiring Credit is here, and businesses can claim payments for new positions they create until 6 October 2021.

    The first claim period opened on 1 February 2021 and closes on 30 April.

    To claim JobMaker Hiring Credit payments during this period, you need to register and meet the eligibility requirements before it ends.

    To submit your claim:

    • register - via ATO online services 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
    • claim payments - you'll need to enter your headcount and payroll for the JobMaker period, and we'll calculate your claim amount based on the information you provide.

    We have resources available to help you with the JobMaker Hiring Credit, including a guide and tool for estimating payments.

    You can register at any time until the scheme ends, but when you register will affect the periods you can claim for.
