JobMaker Credit


The Federal Government is providing an incentive for employers to hire people under the age of 35 by providing a $200 wage subsidy for the first 12 months the employee is with the business. Like JobKeeeper, it is intended that the reporting requirements will be handed via Single Touch Payroll and in fact the ATO has made Single Touch Payroll mandatory to be able to receive this subsidy.

The subsidy is as follows:

  • $100 per week for employees aged between 29 and 35
  • $200 per week for employees aged between 16 and 29

The employee must work on average at least 20 hours per week to qualify.
