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.

This is the same way you pay back:

  • Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) debts, and
  • Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) debts

Read more about repayment thresholds on the ATO website.
