Passing on important employee information
When an employee starts work with your company, they should complete an ATO form that contains their TFN. Once they’ve given you this form, you must pass on their TFN to us:
- within 14 days of the employee giving you this form, or
- when you make the first SG contribution on their behalf
The ATO may fine you $1,100 if you’re late providing an employee’s TFN. Privacy laws don’t allow you to give us a copy of the ATO’s form, but they do allow you to pass their TFN onto your employee’s super fund.
