    Employers can claim JobMaker Hiring Credit payments to help with the cost of hiring additional employees. You are not required to pass the payment on to your employees.

    The JobMaker Hiring Credit:

    • is paid every three months in arrears to employers
    • can be claimed from 1 February 2021 for the first JobMaker period (7 October 2020 to 6 January 2021).

    You and your additional employees must meet the eligibility criteria for each JobMaker period you want to claim for.

    You can register at any time until the program closes. You only need to register once. However, you must register before the end of the claim period for the first JobMaker period you want to claim for.

    We are committed to:

    • paying JobMaker Hiring Credit as quickly as we can
    • ensuring employers are eligible before payments are made.
