    Tax file numbers and super contributions

    To effectively administer the super system, it's important that tax file numbers (TFNs) are provided when contributions are made to a super fund or RSA.

    Super funds can use their members' TFNs:

    • as a primary locator to link contributions and rollovers with member accounts and to locate member accounts
    • to help consolidate super accounts within and across funds.

    If you don't have a member's TFN:

    • assessable contributions received on their behalf incur additional tax
    • you must return any member contributions or super co-contributions within 30 days of becoming aware that you shouldn’t have accepted them (unless you obtain the member's TFN within that time).
