From 1 July 2021, there are changes to income tax reporting for self-employed individuals (sole traders) who nominated as eligible business participants (EBPs).

The JobKeeper wage subsidy amount will be provided to these clients as part of informational pre-fill in the income section.

You should advise tax agents of this change, review it and include it at the relevant Business income section, at the label 'Assessable government industry payments', when completing your 2021 Individual Income Tax Return software upgrade.

Technical service design artefacts will be available late March 2021. 

The Individual income tax return Pre-fill Business Implementation Guide (BIG) will be available on the Software developers website by mid-April, whilst the PLS User Guide artefact will be available for  Digital Service Providers by early June.
