Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Hi 

 

If an employee requires standard access (online services for tax agents) but do not have the 2 Australian documents required to achieve a standard access, what should they do?

 

Thanks

Hi @taxprofessional

 

There is no procedure yet where full standard access can be granted to those without Australian identity documents.

 

We do have a process to access our online services with a basic MyGovID as long as additional proof of identity requirements are met. This involves sending in certified documents and all information is provided in the link.

 

Hope this helps, Ari

Hi @Ari,

When will there be a process to grant overseas basaed employees STANDARD level access?  I am currently spending up to 1hr a day accessing data for my offshore team that they used to be able to get themselves.

This is a major inconvenience and not sustainable.

Thanks in advance, david

Hi @DavidO

 

Unfortunately we do not know when or if the identity process will be widened to allow more people to achieve standard access for MyGovID.

 

I would suggest however providing feedback to us via our website to extend the access for users with a basic MyGovID.

 

Thanks, Ari
