The JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme’s third claim period is now open, so if a taxpayer has taken on additional eligible employees since 7 October 2020, they may be able to claim JobMaker Hiring Credit payments for their business.
Eligible businesses can receive up to:
- $10,400 over a year for each additional eligible employee hired aged 16 to 29 years; and
- $5,200 over a year for each additional eligible employee hired aged 30 to 35 years.
The JobMaker Hiring Credit is available to businesses for each additional eligible employee hired before 6 October 2021, so, if a business is thinking about taking on extra staff, they should check if they are eligible to participate in the scheme.
