Beware this website.  Unable to verify legitimacy of business in Australia.  Only contact option advertised on website is a contact email address. No phone contact provided. Standard response denying request for cancellation of services and refund was received in response to email request that was made within in an hour of transaction occuring (upon discovery by parent).  During transaction direct debit and personal details were taken from a minor who is Australian resident (for whom TFN applications are free and must be lodged via Australia Post interview with a parent present).

Hi @jacqd,

 

Welcome to our Community and thanks for providing that information!

 

An Australia resident for tax purposes can apply for a TFN online via our website and attend an Australia Post outlet within 2 weeks of your application to verify your documents. This is a free service.

 

We’ll process your application and issue you with your TFN within 28 days of successfully establishing your identity and send the TFN to the address provided on the application by mail once it’s processed.

 

Thanks, JodieH.
