    96% of Australian small businesses rely on a tax or BAS agent to help manage their tax and super affairs. We work together with the tax profession to assist those small businesses.

    Benefits of using a registered agent

    Using a registered agent provides you with:

    • consumer protection through professional indemnity insurance
    • extended tax and BAS lodgment due dates
    • experienced and qualified agents, who comply with a professional code of conduct.

    Did you know?

    • Only registered agents can charge a fee for providing tax or BAS services.
    • Tax or BAS agents need to be registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).
    • If you use a bookkeeper to prepare your BAS, they must be registered with the TPB unless they are your employee or work for a registered agent.

    To check if an agent is registered, just enter their details in the TPB register or look for the registered practitioner symbol.
