• HELP, HECS or SFSS debts

    From 1 January 2005, the Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) was introduced, replacing the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS).

    If your client's income tax notice of assessment includes a compulsory HELP or Student Financial Supplement Scheme (SFSS) repayment, you can apply to have their compulsory repayment deferred if either of the following applies:

    • it would cause serious hardship
    • there are other special reasons why they believe they should not make a compulsory repayment.
