The information provided in this section is meant as a brief guide for those who wish to retrieve their super refund directly from the ATO.
- Supers start when you’re a contractor, self-employed or employed and your employer pays the super for you. You can choose to contribute to your super if you’re self-employed.
- You can boost your super by setting up an arrangement with your employer to make your own contributions or government contributions.
- If your super is unpaid from your employer, determine if you’re entitled to the super, use the estimate my super tool, confirm with your employer, confirm how much super you received, or lodge an inquiry.
You can download the application for your super refund as a PDF form from the ATO here and mail it to the indicated address, or you can apply directly online here.
The answer is no.
You do not need your passport with the pages showing your arrival and departure dates in Australia to apply for your super refund.
The Australian Government no longer routinely provides a Port and Date Stamp in a visitor’s passport on departure from Australia. Although, a Customs and Border officer will request it if necessary.
However, you will have to apply for a new work holiday visa.
In addition, you must allow 12 weeks before you return for your next visit. This ensures that you’re eligible to claim the super accumulated from your previous trip.
Refunds of Super contributions are taxed, so you won’t get the entire amount.
Refunds of Super contributions are taxed at 35%.
In other words, you will only get about two-thirds of your money back. Continue reading “Will I get all the money I paid to super back?”
