Claim your JobMaker Hiring Credit payment

The JobMaker hiring credit is aimed at increasing employment for young people aged 16-35 years. Employers who demonstrate an increase in overall employment can claim payments for eligible additional employees for up to 12 months from their employment start date.

If you are already registered, and you still meet the eligibility criteria for the JobMaker Hiring Credit, you have until 31 October to claim payments for the period.

The JobMaker Hiring Credit applies to each additional employee hired between 7th October 2020 and 6 October 2021. Payments are made in arrears. Employees hired on or after 7 October 2021 are not eligible.

Employees must be registered before the 6th October – You can do this through us or the ATO’s online service.

To register you’ll need to:

  • Your baseline headcount
  • Your baseline payroll amount
  • Your contact details.

To claim you need to:

  • Nominate your additional eligible employees by running payroll events through your Single Touch Payroll-enabled software.
  • Claim your payments – enter your headcount and payroll information for the JobMaker period, and we’ll calculate your claim amount based on the information you provide.

We are here to help.
