How to view your tax invoice

Understanding your tax invoice

Overdue amount - $0.00

If you have a $0 amount overdue, you don't have any fees owing at this time and no payment is required.

HELP loans and VET Student Loans  

If you have an approved HELP (HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP and/or SA-HELP) or VET Student Loan you will receive invoices showing any changes to your account, such as through class adds, drops, payments that have been received or where fees have been deferred to your loan.

This is to show you fees that will defer to your loan, any other charges on your account, and also to give you the option to make an up-front payment. Fees covered by a loan will be automatically deferred after the census date, less any payments you've made.

Administration and material fees are not covered by loans and need to be paid by the due date.

HECS-HELP eligible students – pay up-front and receive a 10% discount

From 2021, students eligible for HECS-HELP can make an up-front payment of $500 or more before the census date to receive a 10 per cent discount. This discount is available to all students eligible for HECS-HELP, not just those who are taking out a HECS-HELP loan.

The discount is an incentive to pay up-front, either fully or partially, and will decrease student debt for students who have a HECS-HELP loan.

The HECS HELP up-front payment discount will apply for up-front payments of $500 or more for units of study with a census date on or after 1 January 2021.

Your new look invoice!

If you are enrolled in a VET Student Loan approved program, and you are eligible to apply for VETSL, you will be issued with a VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice on your invoice, even if you haven’t applied for the loan!

If you have an approved VETSL, your VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice will detail how much of your tuition is covered by VETSL, and how much is not covered (if applicable) and must be paid by the due date. 

If you do not have an approved VETSL, the VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice will indicate that none of your tuition is covered by VETSL and must be paid by the due date.

I have an approved VETSL – why are some of my tuition fees not covered by VETSL?

Your tuition fees are deferred to VETSL in 2 separate fee periods:

  •    Fee period 1: 1 January – 30 June
  •    Fee period 2: 1 July – 31 December.

Tuition fees for courses with a census date in the current fee period will be covered by VETSL and will not be included in due charges on your invoice. 

Tuition fees for courses with a census date in the next fee period will show as not covered by VETSL, until that fee period commences. Until then, the tuition charges will show as due charges on your invoice.

A new invoice, with an updated VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice, will be issued to you shortly before the commencement of each fee period, or when you add or drop a course, detailing the tuition fees that are now covered by VETSL. 

Administration and material fees are not covered by VETSL and need to be paid by the due date. Due dates, census dates and fee periods are stated on your VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice.

Why are some tuition fees in the current fee period still not covered by VETSL?

You may have reached your program loan limit. Each VETSL approved program has a loan limit. If your VET Student Loan limit doesn't cover the total amount of tuition fees for your program, you need to pay the difference by the due date.

Your program loan limit is stated on your VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees and VET Student Loan Fee Notice.

It's your responsibility to keep track of your VETSL program loan limit AND your combined HELP loan limit. Once you reach your HELP loan limit, you need to pay your remaining tuition fees by the due date.
