Student Financial Supplement Scheme Repayments Rates and Thresholds

The Student Financial Supplement Scheme (SFSS) was a voluntary student loan scheme which closed on 31 December 2003.

The Tax Office continues to recover the loan repayments by adding to income tax assessments, based on minimum income levels.

Repayment income is taxable income plus any total net investment loss (which includes net rental losses), total reportable fringe benefits amounts, reportable super contributions and exempt foreign employment income. Repayments are calculated as a percentage of Repayment Income.

From 1 July 2019, SFSS loans are covered by the HELP repayment tables, together with all study and training loans.
