More about providing your Tax File Number
We are required to tell you the following details before you provide your Tax File Number (TFN) for your superannuation products.
Under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993, the Trustee is authorised to collect your TFN, which will only be used for lawful purposes.
These purposes may change in the future as a result of legislative change. The Trustee may disclose your TFN to another superannuation provider when your benefits are being transferred, unless you request the Trustee in writing that your TFN not be disclosed to any other superannuation provider.
The advantages of providing your TFN
You are under no obligation to provide your TFN, either now or later. It is not an offence not to quote your TFN. However giving your TFN to the Fund will have the following advantages (which may not otherwise apply):
- the tax on contributions to your superannuation account/s will not increase other than the tax that may ordinarily apply,
- no additional tax will be deducted when you start drawing down your superannuation benefits
- it will make it much easier to trace different superannuation accounts in your name so that you receive all your superannuation benefits when you retire.
