Applying for your tax file number (TFN) is very important. If you do it wrong, the ATO may take 45% of your wage every time you get paid. We can help you to fill out the TFN Application Form so you get it right. To get a TFN you must be in Australia and have a visa which allows you to work. Click here to apply for a TFN with BuddyHQ. It’s free. https://buddyhq.com.au/tfn-online-application- form/
If you already have your Tax File Number and you are being taxed at a very high rate please email us and we will help you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Your TFN is used anywhere in Australia at any time now or during your next visit. You will only ever get one TFN, so write it down somewhere safe.
When you have worked in Australia you must submit a tax return to the ATO who will check if you have paid the right amount of tax. Usually you will get a refund of some of the tax you have paid.
