R3 No-TFN quoted contributions



This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

End of attention

Show at R3 all employer contributions received that were for a member who has not quoted a TFN.


The fund will be liable for an additional tax at a rate of 31.5% on these contributions. This additional tax must be paid regardless of any tax offsets and amounts the fund may have transferred under R6.

End of attention

See example 5 for an illustration of how this additional tax must be applied.

R3 is used to determine R Assessable contributions.

Additional tax payable as a result of a member not quoting a TFN should be included in B Gross tax item 12.

If a member subsequently quotes their TFN, a tax offset can be claimed at F5 Credit: no-TFN tax offset, but only in respect of the additional tax paid on no-TFN-quoted contributions (31.5% for complying superannuation funds and 1.5% for non-complying superannuation funds) in one of the most recent three income years. See instructions at F5 for details.
