Final rules issued for JobMaker Scheme

In November 2020 Accounting News, we summarised the JobMaker scheme and related accounting based on provisional information available from the Government at that time. Since then, Final Rules have been released which prescribe how the JobMaker scheme will work, what constitutes an eligible employer and eligible employee, when claims can be made, and a lot of detail on how to calculate the claims. The Final Rules are contained in the Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Payments and Benefits) Amendment Rules (No. 9) 2020.
