Before providing your TFN to the Trustee, the Trustee is required to tell you the following:
the Trustee is authorised to collect your TFN under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993
you're not required by law to provide your TFN but if you don't we may be unable to accept all types of contributions to your BT, SuperWrap or Westpac super account and you may pay more tax than you would otherwise pay on contributions to and payments from your BT, SuperWrap or Westpac super account. Furthermore, without your TFN it may be more difficult to locate your super benefits
your TFN will be used for legal purposes only, including finding or identifying your super benefits in the superannuation fund, calculating tax on super payments and providing information to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). These purposes may change in the future
if you provide your TFN, it may be provided to another super plan or retirement savings account provider that receives any transferred benefits in the future (unless you notify the Trustee in writing not to forward the TFN) and may also be given to the ATO
apart from the above uses, your TFN will be kept confidential.
This information does not take into account your personal objectives, financial situation or needs and so you should consider its appropriateness having regard to these factors before acting on it.
