ATO extends the deadline for future JobKeeper enrolments

The ATO has now extended the deadline to enrol and identify eligible employees for JobKeeper payments to the end of each month being claimed.

An update to the ATO’s JobKeeper key dates has revealed that employers who are enrolling for JobKeeper payments for the first time after May can now enrol their business and identify their eligible employees and business participant by the end of the month they are claiming for.

As an example, businesses who are enrolling for JobKeeper for the first time in June will now be able to complete Step 1 and 2 by the end of June, instead of the first JobKeeper fortnight that they were claiming for.
