Scheduled reporting

If you need to report your employment income, it’ll usually be every 14 days, on a date we tell you. We call this scheduled reporting.

Your employment income reporting period is usually 14 days, and we tell you when it starts and ends. You must report the gross employment income amount you and your partner were paid in the most recent reporting period. You need to do this on the date we tell you to, which we call your reporting date.

Each time you put in a report we’ll tell you what your next reporting date is. Report by 5 pm on your reporting date to make sure we can pay you on time. You can’t report before your reporting date unless it’s on a public holiday. We’ll tell you if you need to report on a different day.

You may get a letter in your myGov Inbox asking you to confirm current employment income. You’ll get the letter if you haven’t told us about changes to your employment income for a while. This is only if you get Age Pension, Disability Support Pension or Parenting Payment.
