Tax file number (TFN) declaration self print specification v1.1.0

Original Published Date
Tax Category
Resource Type

This specification is to be used in the development of software for the input, transfer of data and printing of a Tax file number (TFN) declaration, electronically completed by a payee. The electronic TFN declaration must be developed in conjunction with the Electronic reporting specification for the Tax file number (TFN) declaration reporting, enabling payee information to populate the software product for the generation of TFN declaration report data files.

The developed product will:

  • provide an electronic means for the payee to complete the TFN declaration
  • allow for the printing of a TFN declaration, in the ATO approved layout, with the completed payee information, to be signed by the payee and returned to the payer
  • remove the current process, whereby the business (payer)manually keys the completed payee TFN declaration information into the software payroll product.
