TFN Collection Statement

Supplying your Tax File Number (TFN) is really important as it can affect how much tax you pay on your super, and enables your EISS Super account to accept your after-tax contributions.

We are authorised by law to ask you for your TFN, but you do not have to provide it. If you choose not to provide your TFN, you will be unable to proceed with an online application and you will need to complete a paper version of the application form. 

Under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993, your super fund is authorised to collect your TFN, which will only be used for lawful purposes. These purposes may change in the future as a result of legislative change. If you transfer your super to another fund we may disclose your TFN to the other super provider unless you tell us not to in writing. It is not an offence not to quote your TFN. However, providing your TFN to your super fund will have the following advantages (which may not otherwise apply):

  • Your super fund will be able to accept all types of contributions to your account(s);
  • The tax on employer contributions to your super account(s) will not increase;
  • Other than the tax that may ordinarily apply, no additional tax will be deducted when you start drawing down your super benefits; and
  • It will make it much easier to trace different super accounts in your name so that you receive all your super benefits when you retire.

By providing us with your TFN and personal details, you give us permission to use your TFN to contact other super funds and the ATO to find out if you have other superannuation monies, to receive the results of any ATO searches of the ATO’s super records, to receive transfers or payments of any amount identified through the search process and otherwise assist in consolidating your super accounts
