Urgent News - lodging monthly declarations!

JobKeeper Monthly reports are due by COB Saturday 14th November

ATO Systems are offline all day Saturday 14th of November from 6am

ATO therefore state:

“JobKeeper business monthly declarations are due by the 14th of each month. As our systems will be unavailable over the weekend, we will continue to process the monthly declaration to reimburse employers for October payments past this due date”.

As always, the sooner you lodge the sooner your payments are processed.

If you or your clients are already receiving JobKeeper payments, you will need to submit your check decline in turnover form if you haven’t already. Then you will need to tell the ATO which payment tier you are claiming for each eligible employee or business participant as part of this declaration.


ICB are seeking further information and clarification. Note we do not support this timing by the ATO and have lodged an objection
