The Australian Government’s raft of assistance packages continues to support Australian businesses and individuals in their recovery from the impact of COVID restrictions.
The JobMaker Hiring Credit was introduced from 6 October 2020 as a wage subsidy measure to support businesses who hire and retain younger Australians (aged 16 – 35 years) to stimulate employment.
Businesses can register now for JobMaker Hiring Credits through the ATO website
. Credits are available for up to 12 months for each eligible employee hired between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021.
The first JobMaker period – 7 October 2020 to 6 January 2021 – must be claimed between 1 February 2021 and 30 April 2021. The mechanism for requesting JobMaker will, like JobKeeper, be managed through Single Touch Payroll
