While providing your TFN to your super plan is not compulsory, it does ensure you don't pay any unnecessary contributions tax. Significant consequences apply to Plan members who have not advised the Plan of their TFN. These include:
* Taxing all concessional contributions at the top marginal tax rate, and
* Prohibiting the Plan from accepting any of your non-concessional contributions.
LDS is required to pass on the TFNs of all new employees to the Plan (or their nominated super fund) within 14 days.
