I have been workign for the past four years. Each of those years i have earned above the threshold to pay back your HECS debt. My employer has always taken a portion of my income for my HECS/Help debt. I checked my balance today and it hasn't gone down at all and has in fact increased due to indexation. How can this be?
Your notice of assessment will show any compulsory repayments if your income met the relevant threshhold for that year. Your deductions etc. could have brought your income down to below the threshhold so a compulsory repayment didn't apply after all. But definitely check your notice of assessments for the past few years to see if a HELP payment was included in the calculations of your liability.
