Working Holiday Maker - STP2

We have a working holiday Maker who is waiting on their TFN. Which tax code do we use and what number do we put in the TFN field when doing a payrun? Our payrun won't go through. We have the 8-No TaxC as his Tax Code but not sure what to put as his TFN. I thought it was 000000000 or 111111111.

Please help.

    The 0s one can only be used with 4-NoTFNr (Resident with no TFN) or 4-NoTFNn (Non-Resident with no TFN) so I'd suggest using one of those with the the 1s TFN.

    NOTE: The "15%" Extra Tax entry may be sufficient but if not, you may need to manually calculate & override the PAYG amount calculated on Paycheques in the interim as these scales are not specifically linked to WHM rates.

    TIP: A little known section within the program has a full breakdown of the employee tax scales (Key for Tables) & Tax File Numbers for reference, which is very handy . You'll find these under the Employees > dropdown menu > Tax Table Information > Tax Table Info 😊

    I've tried doing the above but we're still getting an error when we go to submit the STP.

    Have you any other ideas on what we put as the TFN?

    OK, so it may not be the tax scale & TFN that’s the issue.

    Have you selected WHM as the Income Type & included the relevant Home Country?:


    Also check you have entered the employee’s Employee Number, First AND Last Name, Hire Date & full Australian address including suburb (City), State & Postcode:

    Thanks so much. We forgot the State.
