Jobkeeper Monthly Business Declaration
In order to continue claiming Jobkeeper payments you much complete a monthly business declaration. This must be lodged within the first 14 days after the month you are claiming for. For example Mays monthly declaration must be lodged by 14th June. Your BAS agent can make the business monthly declaration for you.
In the lodgement you must reconfirm the business participant details and/or your eligible employees. You will also need to provide with information about your current and projected turnover.
The information you provide on your turnover is not a retest of your eligibility it is just to see how your business is progressing under the JobKeeper Payment scheme.
If your eligible employees change or leave your employment, you will need to maintain your employee information through your monthly declaration.
Before you make your declaration
Make sure you have current and next month's projected turnover ready to enter.
Make sure you have paid your eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) for each JobKeeper fortnight you are claiming for.
If you need to make changes to the employees you are claiming JobKeeper payments for, use the same method you used in Step 2 - Identify and maintain your eligible employees by:
making the changes in your STP pay event report and lodge, allowing three days for the changes to process
lodging an updated JobKeeper report using the Business Portal File transfer function and allow three days for the report to process
having any updates to your eligible employees ready to enter into the Business Portal.
