INTRODUCTION
This publication contains a list of codes to assist you to
correctly complete the individual tax return on behalf of
your clients. You must provide an accurate description of
a taxpayer’s main salary and wage occupation at item 1 of
the tax return, and insert the appropriate six‑digit code from
the list at X item 1. If the taxpayer was involved in more
than one salary and wage income‑earning activity, provide
the description and code for the activity that produced the
greatest amount of income. Note that the occupation
description and code apply to salary and wage income only
and not to other types of income such as pensions and
business or investment income.
The codes in this publication are in alphabetic and numeric
order. In the first instance use the alphabetic list to select the
appropriate code to enter on the tax return by searching
under keywords that describe the taxpayer’s main salary
and wage income‑earning occupation.
For example:
nambulance officer – search under the keyword
‘ambulance’ to find the code 411111
nshipping clerk – search under either of keywords ‘shipping’
and ‘clerk’ to find the code 591211
nsecurity guard – search under either of the keywords
‘security’ and ‘guard’ to find the code 442217, or make
a more specific choice (such as Security guard – payroll,
code 442212).
Once you have identified the most appropriate code from
the list, enter it at X item 1 on the tax return.
SALARY AND WAGE OCCUPATION CODES 2013 If you cannot identify the code using the alphabetic list, your
second option is to use the numeric list. Here you need to
search for the main occupation of the taxpayer under
relevant broad occupation category headings. For example,
if a taxpayer earned the most salary and wage income from
working as a violinist, you would search under headings
‘Arts and media professionals’ and locate the most
appropriate entry, ‘Musician – instrumentalist’, code 211213.
Enter this code at X item 1 on the tax return.
The numeric list may contain more than one major category
for some occupations. For example, clerical work is covered
by several different headings, such as ‘Personal assistants
and secretaries’ and ‘Clerical and office support workers’.
In this case, you may have to examine each category to find
the most appropriate code.
If you cannot find an appropriate specific occupation code
in either list, enter an accurate description of the taxpayer’s
occupation as you understand it and use the ‘Occupation
not listed’ code 999000. Use this code as a last resort only.
Only use codes from this publication and take care to
describe and code occupations as accurately as possible.
An incorrect code could lead to incorrect targeting of an
audit or may result in your client not receiving necessary
service or material from the ATO.
In addition, the ATO provides the Australian Bureau
of Statistics (ABS) with aggregated client records for the
preparation of national accounts and related economic
surveys. Salary and wage occupation codes are an
important part of the information the ATO gives to the ABS.
