FAQ: Do I qualify for the Employment Tax Incentive (ETI), if my employees are paid on the commission bases?

As commission is not a wage, it doesn’t allow the employer to claim the ETI.
Where an employee receives a basic wage (salary) plus commission, the employer will be allowed to claim the ETI, provided the qualifying requirements are met, on the basic wage (salary) only.
