  • 08. Tax Practitioners Board

    The Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) is an independent statutory body created under the Tax Agent Services Act 2009. It consists of members appointed by the Minister for Revenue and Financial Services and staff made available by the Commissioner of Taxation.

    The TPB’s role is to ensure that tax practitioner services are provided to the public in accordance with appropriate standards of professional and ethical conduct. The TPB protects consumers of taxation services by regulating tax practitioners, strengthening the integrity of the tax profession.

    The TPB has three strategic objectives to achieve this role:

    • protect consumers
    • maintain, protect and enhance the integrity of the registered tax practitioner profession
    • the TPB is recognised as an effective and efficient regulator.

    To achieve these objectives, the TPB has five priority areas of focus:

    • acting on misconduct
    • shaping and influencing law and policy
    • strengthening capability
    • supporting the legal and ethical standards of the profession
    • supporting consumers.

    Further information about the TPB, including its activities and results, are provided in its 2019–20 corporate planExternal Link.
