Hello

With regard to withholding from employees wages, if a person does not provide a TFN then Tax Scale 4 applies

If the person has not provided a TFN because they have not completed a TFN Declaration form, how do I know if they are an Australian Resident or a Foreign Resident for the purposes of using Tax Scale 4?

thanks

Chris

Hi @Multicoat

 

Employees should be completing the TFN declaration before they receive payments from the employer.

 

Is it possible for them to complete one for you now? Because you can't tell if they're a resident or not unless they tell you.
