Paying back the loan
You pay back the Student Start-up Loan through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) when your income is more than the minimum repayment threshold.
You pay back the Student Start-up Loan the same way you pay back other debts through the ATO. For example, Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) debts and Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) debts.
Read more about repayment thresholds on the ATO website.
