is there a built in TFN declaration form or one we can download; I understand that there are no downloadable ones from the ATO anymore.

I have found some employees have trouble navigating the online ATO system for lodging them and was wondering if there is a way of doing it in Hosted. I know I do not need to send them to the ATO anymore with the STP system.

cheers Liam

    When you enter the employee details, there is a box in there in the Taxes section that says Lodge TFN declaration, just enter the date and it will lodge with STP

    Thank you, I will have to look for it. I have entered all the tfn details when I set them up. Just used to the old form way 😊

    It’s still a good idea to get them to fill out the old form, or even a personalised one, that way you get the correct information from them to keep

    Hi Kris. I refer to your response on 8th October, wherein you said that "...there is a box in there in the Taxes section that says Lodge TFN declaration, just enter the date and it will lodge with STP." I have seen that box myself in the past and ticked it. But, now that box is no longer there, so do you know what is going on with this please? Last month I changed an employee's tax info to claim the tax free threshold and noted that the box was not there, so I assumed that when I lodged the STP report for the next pay, it would presumably update. I have just found out from the employee that her MyGov record states that she is not claiming the threshold meaning that the ATO record did not update with my STP lodgement. In looking into this a bit further, I note that this same box that you referred to does not seem to be available to tick anymore for a new employee either. Have i missed a change in procedure somewhere?


    PLEASE IGNORE AS I HAVE NOW FOUND INFORMATION FROM RAV.
