Hiring new employees? TFN declaration forms can be downloaded

There is a lot of paperwork to complete when you hire new employees. The good news is, you no longer need to order the form and wait for it to be mailed to you.

The ATO has developed a fillable TFN declaration form which is available on their website. You can download it from www.ato.gov.au/TFNdec or even better, ask your new employee to download the form and fill it in on the screen.

Once it is filled in, print it off, get your employee’s signature then send the original copy to the ATO using the address on the form within 14 days.

Tip! Don’t forget to keep a copy for your files!
