Before you enrol to receive JobKeeper payments, you must advise each eligible employee that you intend to nominate them as an eligible employee under the JobKeeper scheme. In order to be eligible to claim the JobKeeper payment you must have your employee complete and return to you – by 30 April – the JobKeeper employee nomination notice. This form doesn’t need to be lodged with the ATO, but you must have a copy on your records.
NB: Do not use this nomination notice if you are intending to claim JobKeeper payments for an eligible business participant as a different nomination process is required. Business participants include:
- A partner in a partnership
- Adult beneficiary of a trust
- Shareholder / director of a company
- Sole trader
The nomination process for business participants has not yet been released but will be available in due course.
