Forwarding documents with Tax file numbers

As you would be aware Privacy laws were significantly strengthened a couple of years ago with substantial penalties for both individuals and corporations who breach the rules.
One of the areas covered is dealing with tax file numbers.
It is now assumed that sending of emails is not a secure form of communication.  The tax department is taking a stronger stance on the sending of documents with TFN’s and there are cases of where tax agents have had their licences cancelled because of privacy breaches.
Our system does allow for tax returns to be printed with the TFN’s left out
For this reason we have established the following rules:

  1. No document will be emailed with TFN’s attached
  2. Any document that requires the TFN to be retained will either be posted or uploaded to our secure portal area which you can access via a password.
  3. Annual tax returns, if been emailed, will be sent with no TFN’s attached however your name, entity details will be shown to confirm that the return provided is the correct one.

 
If you have any questions or concern please do not hesitate to contact one of the team at McAdam Siemon.
