Tax on superannuation deposit

Posted by Ana Ana
Message 1 of 3 1,215 Views


I've had a Bankwest account since 2009.

I have however been overseas for a little 2 years now.

I am not a permanent resident or citizen.

My questions are as follows: 

1. I want to takeout my superannuation as I am allowed to as a non-resident and...

2. Can I have this superannuation deposited to my Bankwest account?

3. Once I take my superannuation out, my current TFN will be invalid...

4. So without a TFN what are the tax consequences (if any) for a non-Australian resident?

Hi Ana,


Just talk to the ATO superannuation line on 131020 about a departing Australia Super Payment (DASP).


Also, your TFN does not become invalid from withdrawing superannuation. Your TFN is just an identifier in the ATO system and you provide it for tax, super, employment, banking etc.... but unless compromised you usually just keep the same TFN for life (regardless of if your resident or non-resident of Australia for tax purposes) so keep it confidential!
