If you are eligible for the JobKeeper extension, you will need to identify which employees are going to be paid Tier 1 or Tier 2. This is done through the creation of an allowance code on the Payroll Payment and Deduction Codes parameter.
First create the two JobKeeper Tier allowance codes via MenuBar > Parameters > Set Parameters > Payroll > Payroll Payment and Deduction Codes (PC).
The description of the Allowance Codes must be the same as that described below and any deviation may cause significant delay or prevent reimbursement.
Field Description Payroll Code AJKT1 Description JK-TIER1 Normal Pay? Untick Scale Factor 0 Flat Rate/Amount 0 After Tax? Untick Exclude from EGS Untick Exclude on PAYG Untick Payee ID Leave Blank Allowance Code Other Super Fund Manager Leave Blank Visible Tick
Field Description Payroll Code AJKT2 Description JK-TIER2 Normal Pay? Untick Scale Factor 0 Flat Rate/Amount 0 After Tax? Untick Exclude from EGS Untick Exclude on PAYG Untick Payee ID Leave Blank Allowance Code Other Super Fund Manager Leave Blank Visible Tick
- For each of your eligible employees, enter an Adjustment Pay Run, assigning an Allowance Code of the appropriate Tier code with an amount of $0.00 and lodge with the ATO. This is similar to the steps when you nominated your Start Fortnight.
- Once you have assigned the JobKeeper Tiers to all eligible employees, select Audit Payroll Transactions > Audit Pays.
- You will process your pays as per normal using the JobKeeper Top Up allowance to the relevant amount of the selected Tier.
If you are no longer eligible for JobKeeper, you will need to create a JobKeeper Finish allowance code for fortnight 14 and add these to the previously eligible employees as an allowance code and report to the ATO. To create your JobKeeper Finish Allowance code for fortnight 14, see below.
JobKeeper Finish - Fortnight 14
|Exclude from EGS||Untick|
|Exclude on PAYG||Untick|
|Payee ID||Leave Blank|
|Super Fund Manager||Leave Blank|
Rather than creating Start and Finish codes for all fortnights through to fortnight 26, you can add the relevant code as required using the same fortnight descriptions as previously used however change the number for the relevant fortnight e.g. where you are finishing JobKeeper payment at fortnight 24, the description will be JOBKEEPER-FINISH-FN24.
