What's New?

Tax File Number Revision (TR) submission

The department is working with the ATO to support nightly transfer of student HELP data from July 2017. This new capability will apply to all data reported with 2017 census dates.


The new process requires each TFN to be verified as belonging to a student before their associated HELP debt can be transferred to the ATO. Currently only encrypted TFNs can be reported to the ATO.

For all the details, including a draft file structure please visit our Tax File Number Revision (TR) submission page.
