    • Nominate your additional eligible employees by running payroll events through your Single Touch Payroll (STP)-enabled software.
    • Claim your payments – enter your headcount and payroll information for the Jobmaker period, and we will calculate your claim amount based on the information you provide.

    Eligible businesses can receive up to:

    • $10,400 over a year for each additional eligible employee hired aged 16 to 29 years
    • $5,200 over a year for each additional eligible employee hired aged 30 to 35 years.

    The JobMaker Hiring Credit is available to businesses for each additional eligible employee hired before 6 October 2021.
