  • Claiming the JobMaker Hiring Credit

    The JobMaker Hiring Credit is here and not-for-profit organisations can claim payments for new positions they create until 6 October 2021.

    The first claim period for the JobMaker Hiring Credit opened 1 February 2021, and closes 30 April 2021.

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

    To submit your claim, you'll need to:

    • register – you can do this using ATO online services or Online services for business, 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 you must register before the end of the claim period for the first JobMaker period you want to claim for.
