  • Who should use this declaration

    Complete this declaration if you want to:

    • advise your payer that you have become, or ceased to be, an Australian resident for tax purposes
    • claim or discontinue claiming the tax-free threshold
    • advise your payer of your Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), VET Student Loan (VSL), Financial Supplement (FS), Student Start-up Loan (SSL) or Trade Support Loan (TSL) repayment obligations, or that you have repaid your loan in full
    • claim or vary your entitlement to a tax offset (including the seniors and pensioners tax offset – SAPTO).

    You must have completed a Tax file number declaration with your current payer before completing a Withholding declaration.

    If you give the wrong information, you may have insufficient amounts withheld from your payments and you may have a large tax debt at the end of the income year.
