Declaration for tax and BAS agents
The Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) has advised that, from 2016, registered tax and BAS agents will need to complete an annual declaration with the TPB to demonstrate they are meeting their ongoing registration requirements.
“Registered tax and BAS agents must submit an annual declaration to the TPB on the anniversary of their renewal date each year, other than the year they need to renew their registration and we will email tax and BAS agents 45 days before it’s due,” Mr Ian Taylor, Chair of the TPB, said.
The annual declaration is a “simple form” that replaces the professional indemnity insurance notification form agents previously needed to complete each year, and will allow tax and BAS agents to show the TPB they are meeting their ongoing registration requirement, including:
- Maintaining professional indemnity insurance;
- Undertaking continuing professional education;
- Meeting their personal tax obligations;
- Fit and proper requirements; and
- Any changes in registration details or circumstances.
