Hi all
Please may someone advise me what to do because I been applying through my tax agent to get my DASP since September this year.
I been getting the run around where documents that were suppose to be submitted were not submitted and have to keep making calls and follow ups with my refund.
I am currently overseas and it's getting quite difficult getting I.d docs certified . When you call the super fund office the staff are being very coarse when speaking to them and trying to find a solution.
Please any advice would be highly appreciated

Hi @Rellum,

 

The easiest way to claim is online through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). 

 

They’ll forward your application to your superannuation fund and confirm electronically that you’re eligible to make a claim through a direct link between the ATO and Department of Home Affairs (DHA).

 

In terms of certifying your documentation when living overseas, this will depend on your super fund’s requirements, however generally the following people can assist:

  • Australian consular officer
  • Australian diplomatic officer
  • Judge
  • Notary public
  • Court registrar
  • Justice of the Peace.

For documents in a language other than English, usually English translation (prepared by an accredited translator) is required.

 

For further information, check out the ATO’s Departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP) page. You may also find some helpful information on QSuper’s Temporary resident leaving Australia page.

 

Thanks,

Hailey
