移民局要收集所有技术移民人的税号来做什么呢? 细思极恐。

翻译成中文的意思保证此人是遵守签证和担保的规定。

再结合此法案的explanatory statement

The amendments limit TFN sharing to specific purposes, and limit it to skilled temporary and permanent visa subclasses.

Serious ramifications may result from salary underpayments or breaches of visa conditions.  Sponsors may be removed, or suspended from, the sponsored skilled work visa program.  Visa holders may have their visa cancelled. 这条规定的影响包括一些雇主的担保资格或持有人的签证会被取消。

Data matching using TFNs minimises the risk of misidentifying a visa holder when investigating a sponsor for compliance with their obligations.  The data collected will be used for compliance and research purposes.  As such, TFN sharing will enable the Department to undertake compliance activities with improved targeting.  TFN sharing will also support legitimate research activities into skilled migration trends and outcomes. 移民局准备利用TFN减少在调查雇主是否遵守担保规定的时候找错人的风险。比如说雇主去了一家工厂,找某个人,某个人和某个人长的差不多,名字也接近,特别是默罕默德之类的名字,很可能搞混。本来是来调查默罕默德A的签证的,却问成了默罕默德B的事情, 这种乌龙有了TFN就可以避免,直接去税局调一下看看默罕默德A有没有在这个公司去年交税就行。

最狠的这句话,TFN sharing will enable the Department to undertake compliance activities with improved targeting. 就是移民局准备搞靶向调查,可能的做法是把所有187 186 457 482 的人的TFN税号调出来,看看和当时担保的雇主是否匹配,是否已经按照担保时候的收入水平交税。 比如186 高薪担保来的申请人,一查TFN 完全没有交税记录,或者交了很少的税,那么马上进入调查程序。或有 482 持有的税号在另一个公司出现,马上进入调查程序。志杰移民认为以后移民局扫街式的调查会减少,这种靶向调查会成为今后的主流。
