Tax Refund Cheques now Redundant

As from the 1st July 2013 the Australian Taxation Office will no longer be issuing income tax refunds as a cheque, instead, the refunds will be electronically transferred directly to your Australian bank account.

So when you visit your Registered Tax Agent or complete your return online you will need to make sure that you have your current bank account details which will include your BSB, account name and account number.
