We are authorised by the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to ask you to provide tax file numbers (TFNs). We use TFNs to identify payees in our records. It is not an offence for payees not to provide their TFNs but if they don't additional tax will be withheld from payments or distributions.

We are also authorised to collect the information on this form by one or more of the following Acts:

  • Income Tax Assessment Act 1936
  • Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
  • Taxation Administration Act 1953.

The information you provide will help us administer these Acts and other tax laws.

Where authorised by law, we may give this information to other government departments and agencies, including:

  • Department of Education
  • Department of Employment
  • Department of Human Services
  • Department of Social Services
  • Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • State and Federal Police
  • Australian Bureau of Statistics

We also provide taxpayer information to treaty partners overseas under international tax agreements.

If you have an Australian Business Number, some information on this form may be collected under the A New Tax System (Australian Business Number Act) 1999 and will be used to update your details on the Australian Business Register (ABR). Where authorised by law, selected information may be made publicly available and some may be passed to a wide range of government agencies, including Commonwealth, state and local government agencies.

Our privacy policy contains important information about your privacy, including information about how you can access and seek correction of information we hold about you, how to make a complaint if you think we have breached the Australian Privacy Principles and how we will deal with any privacy complaints.
