Transfer of data not authorised by an ordinary member


A feature of the e-AR is the ability to display to the Designated Group Employer, the Ordinary Members tax paid and total wages.

This helps the Designated Group Employer complete the group reconciliation efficiently and correctly.

To ensure privacy and secrecy provisions are not breached, the Ordinary Members authority to display their data to the Designated Group Employer is required.

Reasons for non-authorisation

The Ordinary Member may choose not to authorise the transfer of data, for example because of:

  • Uncertainty about who the Designated Group Employer is,
  • Concerns about the data being accessed by persons other than those representing the Designated Group Employer.

Collection of data for group reconciliation

If the Ordinary Member does not authorise the transfer of data, in order to complete the group reconciliation correctly, the Designated Group Employer should contact the Ordinary Member to obtain their wages and tax paid details.
