Employers to get up to $200 per week hiring credit..
The JobMaker Hiring Credit will be available to employers for each new job they create over the next 12 months from 7 October 2020 for which they hire an eligible young job seeker aged 16 to 35 years old.
For each eligible employee, employers will receive for a period up to 12 months:
- $200 a week if they hire an eligible young person aged 16 to 29 years; or
- $100 a week if they hire an eligible young person aged 30 to 35 years.
Employers must demonstrate that they have increased their overall employment to receive the JobMaker Hiring Credit for a period up to 12 months for each position created.
To claim the JobMaker Hiring Credit, employers need to report their employees’ payroll information to the Australian Taxation Office through Single Touch Payroll.
Employers will be eligible for new additional hires where the employee is aged 16 to 35 years old and received JobSeeker Payment, Youth Allowance (Other) or Parenting Payment for at least one of the previous three months at the time of hiring.
