- The 3rd round claim is now open, covering the period 1st April until 30th June 2021.
- Attach pay evidence covering the full claim period for either Round 1 (5 October 2020 – 31st December), Round 2 (1st January 2021 to 31st March) or Round 3 (1st April to 30th June 2021).
All claims, for any of the claim periods (the last claim period will end on 31st March 2022), must be submitted by 31st December 2022.
The full pay period for each quarter must be covered by the pay slips provided – this may mean attaching a pay period prior to 5 October and post the end of each quarter, to ensure these dates are included.
- Payslips must:
– cover the entire period of the claim
– contain the name of the apprentice/trainee, employer, and include the employer ABN
– contain dates of payments and gross (pre-tax) wages paid.
- It has been noted that some accounting packages (eg Xero) may not provide all of the pay period for the duration specified so you may need to include pay periods before and after the required pay period for eg. in Quarter 1, pay period evidence from before 5 October and after 31 December 2020 may need to be included.
- Please also note – If your Apprentice or Trainee had an unpaid period (due to annual leave, training period where they were not being paid, or they were stood down) during the quarter period, ensure you include details of this on your Claim Form where indicated.
- Take your time with completing the claim form and provide accurate information about your company and your apprentice or trainee.
