The below webinar recording shows how the JobKeeper automation works in foundU.
- If an employee does not work in a period, the JobKeeper payment amount of $750 per week or $1500 per fortnight will generate.
- If an employee does work in a week, the pay item will be automatically inserted into the payslip with a $0.00 value.
- Use the new JobKeeper payments report, to show the gross wage value of the ATO prescribed fortnights for each eligible employee.
- Edit the amounts if you are topping up, and update the payslips with applicable payslips or use the allowance CSV upload
Before proceeding ensure your employees' are toggled on in the Employees profile. Check out our JobKeeper process page for more information.
1. Will the JobKeeper automation start immediately?
A: The JobKeeper automation will be released Wednesday 20th May, however the first automatic generation of data will apply at the end of your pay period.
2. Can you turn off the JobKeeper automation?
A: Please email the help desk and let us know why you feel that this automation may not work for your business and we can look at options for turning this off for your business.
3. Does the JobKeeper report manage the amounts when your JobKeeper amounts may not marry ATO amounts?
A: Keep in mind that ATO's fortnights are based off payment dates.
The JobKeeper report will pull through any payment date within those ATO fortnights for the employees that are tagged as JobKeeper eligible.
So it wont matter if your pay period ending is exactly the same as the JobKeeper fortnights as it will just look at the payment dates within ATO's fortnight range, this is inline with ATO's guidance.
4. Will the report back date to the 30/3 or to current fortnight?
A: Yes the report will backdate to the start of when you first marked your employees as eligible so if that is 30/3 then it will back date to then. This is a great report to reconcile with.
