Registrations for the JobMaker Hiring Credit are now open. You can register using Australian Taxation Office (ATO) online services, the Business Portal, or through your registered tax or BAS agent, at any time until the program closes.

Eligible employers will receive payments of:

  • up to $200 a week – for each eligible employee aged 16 to 29 years old
  • up to $100 a week – for each eligible employee aged 30 to 35 years old

The positions must increase both your salon’s:

  • total employee headcount from 30 September 2020, and
  • payroll for the reporting period, compared to the three months to 6 October 2020

The amount of JobMaker Hiring Credit claimed cannot exceed the amount that the organisation’s payroll increases for the reporting period.

Where all employer and employee eligibility criteria are met, new employees taken on until 6 October 2021 will attract the JobMaker Hiring Credit for up to 12 months from their employment start date. Claims can be made every three months from 1 February 2021.

Employers cannot receive the JobMaker Hiring Credit and JobKeeper payments at the same time. If you’re receiving a wage subsidy under another Commonwealth program for an employee, you cannot claim the JobMaker Hiring Credit for that employee.
