TFN Number

Your TFN (Tax File Number) is required by everyone who wants to work at any point during their stay. This is a legal requirement and employers will not be able to pay you without it. If you have purchased the WHV Done For You package, you'll receive this shortly!

Local Bank Account

Now that you've arrived in Australia, we suggest getting a local bank that is fully compatible with all jobs. TransferWise is great, but some employers don't recognise it to pay you. That's why we've partnered with CommBank!
