The JobMaker Hiring Credit Scheme

Business Development Specialist - Ceebeks Business Solutions for GOOD
The JobMaker Hiring Credit Scheme has been open from the 1st February 2021. The JobMaker Hiring Credit is being administered by the ATO and provides a wage subsidy payment directly to employers as an incentive to employ additional job seekers aged 16 to 35 years. Eligible employers can access the JobMaker Hiring Credit for each eligible additional employee they hire between 7th October 2020 and 6th October 2021.
Registrations for the JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme opened on the 7th December 2020, and claims for the first JobMaker period have been made from 1st February 2021, provided employers are registered and meet all eligibility requirements.
Employer eligibility requirements include that applicants:
• are up to date with their tax and GST lodgement obligations for the last 2 years;
• have not claimed JobKeeper payments for a fortnight that started during the JobMaker period; and
• are reporting through Single Touch Payroll.
The ATO have been writing to employers who have registered for the JobMaker Hiring Credit from 15th January 2021, encouraging them to check that they meet all JobMaker Hiring Credit eligibility criteria before they claim, to ensure that registrants can make a claim from 1st February 2021 and there are no delays in them receiving their payments.
Please contact me if you have any questions about these claims.
Have a great day!

Business Development Specialist - Ceebeks Business Solutions for GOOD

I love business and the ability to change people’s lives through them!

At Ceebeks Business Solutions for GOOD, we get up every morning to positively impact young families in business by making their businesses REALLY work so that we all make an even bigger impact together. The rewards that bring allow our team ('the fantastic five') to make small but powerful contributions to impact our local community, our country and the lives of those less fortunate around the world.

You see, something quite remarkable happens when we work together, for example, the gift of water is made when we prepare a tax return, the gift of a goat is provided when we help a new business start-up, the gift of shelter is forwarded when we organise a home loan. When we work together, we actually change the world!
