    Just submitted mine today and on the back of the form, it says it takes 28 days so roughly a month.

    I'm guessing it is best to put it when you enrol. Since you are not in Australia, you should get it done asap. I'm guessing you have until the census date (which is independent for each uni and maybe even course (not sure)). The census date is the date that everything is finalised and you are officially enrolled in a course and eligible for HECS-HELP or else you have to pay upfront or lose a position in the course.

    Don't panic, the census date is usually a few weeks after the course has started.

    But still, oncce you get back, apply for a TFN, which will give you the opportunity to have your TFN in before your course starts.

    Re: Reminder: Tax File Number

    I've applied for the TFN now, because I didn't know it was needed until today
    Can I still confirm my Uni application and fill out my timetable, then confirm my TFN number later (before the census date)???

    ^ I did this too. For UTS it told me to choose full upfront payment first then give the 'certificate of application for tfn' to the student centre later

    Re: Reminder: Tax File Number

    definitely deserves the bump. esp relevant to first-year undergraduate students in 2015.

    Re: Reminder: Tax File Number

    My application for a TFN is still pending and I have around a week left to accept an offer. If the situation occurs where the TFN doesn't arrive can I still apply for HECS after I have accepted the offer? (UNSW Commerce)

    You should have until the 'census date' to submit your TFN.

    I believe that's 31 March 2015 but best to contact the uni to check.

    Re: Reminder: Tax File Number

    I didn't get my TFN before enrolling in uni either (although at usyd) and it was fine with them. I just had to scan and send the document regarding HECS-HELP at a later date.

    Re: Reminder: Tax File Number

    If anyone has a TFN but has lost it, just check out the website and give them a call. Also make sure to have your passport/drivers license handy as proof of identification. Once you provide all that type of information, they will give it to you, and you are good to go.
