Enrolling for JobKeeper and identifying employees

If you are enrolling for JobKeeper payments for the first time, assess your businesses eligibility for JobKeeper under the Basic or Alternative turnover tests. If eligible, determine each of your employee’s eligibility and then have them complete the JobKeeper Employee Nomination Notice. If you are not a sole trader but are claiming for an active business participant you will need to complete the JobKeeper Nomination Notice for Eligible Business Participants. These nominations will need to be obtained prior to paying the minimum $1,500 gross (before tax) to each eligible employee claiming JobKeeper per fortnight.
