How to assist clients assess eligibility, access and manage the JobMaker hiring credit

What needs to be done pre 6 Jan 2021
Identifying eligible employers and employees
The practical issues and problem areas

In the 2020-21 Federal Budget, the Government announced the introduction of a new JobMaker Hiring Credit to stimulate job creation. The framework legislation has passed Parliament and Treasury has released the draft rules detailing how the new credit is expected to work.

The first deadline for electing to participate in the JobMaker scheme for the first JobMaker period is currently 6 January 2021. The JobMaker Hiring Credit Essentials Webinar helps to identify clients who might be eligible for JobMaker credits so that they can take appropriate steps to avoid missing out on payments from the ATO.

We work through the conditions that need to be met to access the JobMaker credits, focusing on the rules for determining an employer is eligible to participate in the scheme, and how to identify employees who can be taken into account under this measure.
