With recent Federal Government Budget announcements around financial incentives to hire persons aged between 16-35 years, now is a perfect time to engage with a recruitment agency such as Horner Recruitment to hire your next permanent employee to help push your business forward.
From 7 October 2020, eligible employers will be able to claim $200 a week for each additional employee they hire aged 16 to 29 and $100 a week for those aged 30 to 35.
New jobs created until 6 October 2021 will attract the JobMaker hiring credit for up to 12 months from the date the new position is created.
To be eligible, the employee must have received jobseeker, youth allowance (other), or parenting payment for at least one of the previous three months at the time of hiring but must not be receiving other wage subsidies such as apprenticeship funding.
Employees must work at least 20 paid hours a week on average and the credit can only be claimed by one employer for each eligible employee.
Unlike the JobKeeper wage subsidy, which must be passed on to the employee regardless of their hours worked, the employer keeps the hiring credit and pays employees only for hours worked.
Government agencies, sovereign entities (including wholly owned foreign resident subsidiaries) and companies claiming JobKeeper are ineligible.

The up to $10,000 wage subsidy not only decreases the financial cost of hiring new, it can also be used to offset the cost of Recruitment fees when engaging Horner Recruitment.
