Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

If an employee is casual and at school doing only 3 subjects to finish their certificate is that considered 'not a full time student'

On the form they say part time is 75% but how is that calculated?

When I originally nominated them on the business portal it just had the original questions of over 16 and casually employed. They have ticked not studying full time on the employee nomination notice as they usually work 1 or 2 days a week and don't attend school.They also worked all school holidays.

Hi @rjball1976,

 

Thank you for your question.

 

The employee eligibility criteria is self assessed requirement - if the employee able to determine the part time study also met the the additional eligibility requirement then they able to claim the JobKeeper payment .

 

"Full-time study is defined in broad terms to mean enrolled in and undertaking study in a course of study at an educational institution of at least 75 per cent of the normal full-time study requirements"

 

Hope this help.
