I will be moving to the area in Sept from the UK and want to find work ASAP. I am going to do the white card on line before I leave but have been told that I wont be able to get work until I have my ABN. As I understand you cant get this until you have the TFN which can take around 4 weeks! Is there any way around this as most jobs I have seen require the ABN? Thanks for any help you can give

You can apply for your TFN online as soon as you arrive and have passed through immigration. It may take a few weeks for the TFN to come through the post, but you get a reference number meanwhile, that you can use to apply for an ABN.

When we arrived in Perth 2008, my hubby went to the Tax Office in Central Perth to get his TFN while the clerk was going through all my hubbys details she rang the Dept responsible for issuing the ABN and they promptly issued one over the phone. Not sure if this is usual practice but if you dont manage to get your TFN before coming out just go down to the Tax Office and kindly ask it worked for us.

We applied for the tfn online this week and called into the tax office to find out what the procedure is for the abn, we were advised not to apply for it until we have the tfn as it can delay things when processing the abn application if the tfn is not quoted when applying
