We’re doing scheduled maintenance on ATO Community to bring you a bigger, better and brighter online community. You may see us go into read-only mode over the weekend while we do this. Don’t worry! You’ll still be able to search the site to find your answers.

I've just had a fresh look at the ATO site and I see that I have completed 'Step 1'. Looking over to the sidebar there is a question asking 'I'm a sole trader, do I need to complete Step 2?' The answer is basically 'yes', so I proceed to fill in the Jobkeeper Employee Nomination Form, which seems to not be written with Sole Traders in mind.
Section C of the Nomination Form states: To be an eligible employee, you need to meet these requirements: You are not in receipt of a JobKeeper payment as a sole trader, nor is another employer or eligible business in receipt of a JobKeeper payment for you.
I'm confused - I'm sure that many other people are too!
