Employers who use Single Touch Payroll

If an employer is using Single Touch Payroll enabled software and have used JobKeeper codes to notify the start of employees into JK:

You must ensure that the ATO have been notified the CORRECT employees 48 hours before you go in to lodge the Monthly Claim Form.

The monthly Claim Form for JK for MAY will NOT allow any change to the number of employees.  It is prefilled based on what you have told the ATO through your software.

If the number is wrong - the current ATO advice is to go back into your software - find and fix the specific employees, submit the change through STP and then wait 48 hours before the ATO system will have corrected the prefill.

ICB have requested a change to the system.
