Our Tax File Number Service is very easy.
Your Australian tax file number (TFN) is your personal reference number in the tax and super systems. It is an important part of your tax and super records as well as your identity, so keep it secure. When you are issued with a TFN it's yours for life. You keep the same TFN even if you change your name, change jobs, move interstate or go overseas.
It is not obligatory to have a TFN, but without one you pay more tax. You also won't be able to apply for government benefits, lodge your tax return electronically or get an Australian business number (ABN).
We can help you to get a Tax File Number if you are currently in Australia (or intend to go there) and you have:
- a valid permanent migrant visa, or
- a valid visa with work rights, or
- a valid overseas student visa, or
- a valid visa allowing you to stay in Australia indefinitely.
We can also organize your TFN application if you are An Australian resident and need a tax file number If you know your TFN, but wish to advise the Tax Office of changes to your details, go through this application process and enter your updated details.
