  • Privacy notice – Application to register for fringe benefits tax

    We are authorised by the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to request an entity's tax file number (TFN). We will use the TFN to identify the entity in our records. It is not an offence not to provide TFNs but if you don't there may be a delay processing this form.

    We are also authorised by the Fringe Benefits Tax (Assessment) Act 1986 and the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to collect the information requested on the Application to register for fringe benefits tax form. We need it to register you for fringe benefits tax (FBT). If you don't provide this information, we may not be able to process your application.

    We collect some personal information about you because you signed the form. The information collected will enable us to ensure that you are the person with the authority within the entity to complete the form. It will also allow us to contact you if we need further information.

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

    • Department of Human Services
    • Law Enforcement Agencies
    • Australian Bureau of Statistics.

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

    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.
