Grow your business with help from the JobMaker Hiring Credit
Posted on March 3rd, 2021
Businesses that are creating new positions and employing young Australians may be eligible for a new wage subsidy called the JobMaker Hiring Credit, paid by the ATO.
Employers that are increasing both their headcount and payroll can receive up to $10,400 per year for each new job they fill with an eligible employee aged 16 to 29 years, and $5,200 for each eligible employee aged 30 to 35 years.
Deputy Commissioner James O’Halloran said that employers do not need to satisfy a turnover test for their business and the three-step process to access the credit is straightforward.
“The first step for a business is to register. From here, the second step is to nominate their new employees and the third is to make a claim.
“I also encourage employers who need advice to contact their tax or BAS agent, or check out the resources available on our website,” said Mr O’Halloran.
