Paying the Australian Taxation Office from overseas just got easier

Choose your currency through the connected OFX platform, click to transfer and we’ll do the rest.

We’ve made things simple when it comes to paying the ATO from abroad. 

What does this mean for you?

  • Any payment you make via OFX to the ATO will be directly reconciled with your unique “PRN” (Payment Reference Number)
  • You no longer have to transfer money back to your Australian bank account, or pay with your credit card, meaning you can say goodbye to unnecessary FX fees and hello to competitive exchange rates.
  • You can make payments in over 20 currencies.

How does this work?
