The registration process
Getting your client ready for the reporting environment
Managing ongoing compliance

The JobKeeper legislation and rules are out and are active. And importantly, advisers only have days and weeks to be across it all.  Your clients will look to you to assist them and alert them to issues they may not have thought about.

April is a key month for registration and there will be steps that clients need to take in the following months to ensure they continue to be eligible for JobKeeper payments from the ATO.

You need to get these steps right.

This webinar answers the questions the profession is asking, explores the registration issues and defines the monthly reporting process.
