  • Important information

    We will process your application only if you:          

    • have lodged all required tax returns and activity statements, or notified us in writing if you were not required to lodge tax returns in prior years
    • did not receive a debit assessment on your last tax assessment (if you also had an approved withholding variation for that year)
    • do not have any outstanding tax debt owning to the Australian Government
    • do not have any outstanding debts under any other Acts administered by us.

    We may seek more information from you before or after your application is processed. If you fail to provide this, your application may not be approved.

    We process your application based on the information you provide. It is your responsibility to make sure that this information is adequate to allow us to calculate a withholding rate to meet your end-of-year tax liability.

    If you are granted a variation, this does not mean we have accepted the tax treatment of the income and deductions on your application. Your actual tax liability will be determined after you lodge your tax return.
