Hi! 

 

I'm trying to register my client - he is a sole trader with 1 eligilbe employee for JobKeeper. He is not eligible as a sole trader business participate. 

 

Is his employee eligible of Jobkeeper still - even though he isn't as a sole trader?

 

The ATO won't let me register him?!?!

Hi @WizardLaneBooks,

 

I can confirm what @Mike1 has said. It's a known issue with the form, which has been escalated to the appropriate team who are looking into it. In the meantime it is indeed possible to have it amended through calling the contact centre. 

 

Have a good night, guys!

There were issues with the form. Lodge the form by saying yes to eligible particpant and then call the ATO and ask them to amend the form.

They are aware of the issue and this is the only way to get around it.
