JobKeeper payments

I need make the top up Jobkeeper payment, but the ATO fortnightly cycle is different to our weekly payroll cycle including the start and end cycle days, do I have to change our pay cycle to be more inline with the ATO?

No it says on the website that you don't need to change your pay cycle

You need to re-start or continue to pay all your eligible employees at least $1,500 a fortnight in line with your existing pay cycle through your existing payroll solution

My staff are paid weekly. My pay period is 24/9 - 30/9. Should we have paid  some of the full $1500/fn for the days worked up to 27/9? For those part-time staff, there's a big difference.
