Is your tax practitioner registered?
Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) is reminding all small business owners to check their tax agents, BAS agents or tax accountant (financial) advisers are registered with the TPB, if you use one.
The TPB is the national body responsible for the registration and regulation of tax practitioners. They are responsible for ensuring tax practitioners comply with the Tax Agent Services Act 2009, including the Code of Professional Conduct, and have the necessary qualifications and experience.
