myjoboffer is committed to providing you with the latest compliant forms that conform to Australian Government requirements. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) recently released instructions to software developers to alter the question sets in the Tax File Number Declaration form. This change combines similar questions and expands the scope of other questions.

 

Tax File Number Declaration form – what’s changed?

  1. The question which relates to Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), Student Start-Up Loan (SSL) or Trade Support Loan (TSL) debts has been reworded to:

“Do you have a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), VET Student Loan (VSL), Financial Supplement (FS), Student Start-up Loan (SSL) or Trade Support Loan (TSL) debt?”

  1. The following question has been removed as it has been combined with another question:

“Do you have a Financial Supplement Debt?”

 

If you are an existing myjoboffer customer, the Tax File Number Declaration form on your myjoboffer site has been already been updated to reflect this change. If you use CSV exports and currently include these questions, this has been automatically updated for you. You may need to check with your payroll provider that their software is being upgraded (if it hasn’t already) to support the change to your export report.
