Here’s an example of our work:

HELP REPAYMENTS

David is an employee accountant who in 2016/2017 earned $65,000. Nearing retirement, he decided to make provision for his retirement by sacrificing $13,000 of his before-tax salary into superannuation. On this TFN Declaration when he commenced his job, David notified his employer that he has a HELP debt, however after he lodged his 2016/2017 tax return he ended up with a tax bill of $2,925 consisting entirely of his HELP liability. David phones the ATO to enquire how this happened.

It is correctly explained to him that because he is salary sacrificing to superannuation, his employer is withholding tax on his post-sacrifice salary ($1,000 per week), not on his gross weekly salary ($1,250 per week). Because the $1,000 is below the minimum threshold for weekly HELP withholding of $1,074 (approximately $54,869 (as per earlier table) divided by 52 weeks) the employer did not, and was not, required to withhold tax towards the HELP liability.

Therefore, because no compulsory HELP repayments were made through David’s pay, he must make the compulsory repayment of $2,925 himself from his own savings. As per the earlier table, the repayment rate will be 4.5% ($65,000 x 4.5% = $2,925).
