The ATO, Payroll and the significance of JobKeeper Codes


Different Experiences – employee list

The ATO system provides a different experience depending on whether the employee has used payroll software with STP reporting and again a slightly different experience if you are using JobKeeper Codes in that software.

Payroll Software with STP and using JobKeeper Codes

The ATO are informed of the employers “eligible employees” through the use of the JobKeeper-Start codes. 

Employer will NOT (currently) see the employee list nor be able to maintain it on the ATO website.

The ATO will prefill the number of employees – if it is incorrect then “edit” them, check the software is reporting the correct employees to ATO through STP.

Payroll Software with STP and NOT using JobKeeper Codes

The ATO are informed of the employers’ employees through STP reporting. 

The Employer will be provided with the employee list and will be able to indicate JK status on the ATO website.  They will also be able to add any missing employees.

The ATO will not prefill the number of employees in April, but will do so in May and following.

Payroll without STP software.

The ATO do not have the eligible employees and therefore the employee must add them.

                  For less than 40 – this can be performed on screen

                  For more than 40 they are required to complete a CSV file and submit it to the ATO. 

The Employer will be provided with the ability to add employees and indicate the JK status.

The ATO will not prefill the number of employees in April, but will do so in May and following.
