    Registered tax or BAS agents

    You may want to get a registered tax or BAS agent to help you with your tax obligations. If you do use a tax agent, you still need to have all your records ready to give to them. This way, they can help you claim all the business tax deductions you are entitled to.

    It's important to choose a registered tax or BAS agent, because it means they are qualified and experienced with tax. Only a registered agent can legally charge you a fee.
