Re: JobKeeper Application for Business Participant with 0 Employees

Hey Kevin,

 

I have the same issue, just spoke with an operator on the phone who advised because I am the eligible business participant she doesn't believe I have to do this step. She didn't sound too sure of herself on the matter though, and that seems to contradict the steps given by the ATO so... I am searching for some confirmation that what she has told me is correct

I am having the same problem. I have enrolled for jobkeeper but can’t work out how I can register a eligible business participant. Is this done via the business portal?

Nickel,

 

Just so I knwo what you did, you have registered an MyGovID account and signed in?

If so did you complete Step 1  indicating zero for employees and down further on the form you selected   eligible business participant.

 

If that is the case your next move is to complete the Nomination form that relates to you via this link https://www.ato.gov.au/General/JobKeeper-Payment/Sole-traders-and-other-entities/

 

My question was if we do not submit the form how does the ATO know who I am as such, well they know who you are from MyGOVID sign up.  so you are auromatically the Nominated person.

 

It will all become clearer on the 4/5/2020 when the inforation is released on calculations for our catergory is released.

Hello,

Did you have any luck with how to identify yourself as the eligible business participant? I can't find anywhere to manually enter details.  

Thank you

You will need to manually enter the details of the business participant."

Hi Launchpad, the site is very confusing, but if you click into "identify employee", it then gives you a drop down to identify yourself as a business participant. It took me HOURS to find this. They really should have made it clearer.

You can't do this till May 4. Then they will add something to the Buisness Portal

Hi, 

In your comments you've mentioned for "to add the participant through the Business Portal" What do you mean by Businese portal and where to download the nomination form? Do you keep the form or submit them to ATO?
