BAS AGENTS ARE TAX PRACTITIONERS

It can sometimes be a little confusing when reading correspondence from our industry regulators, such as the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) or the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), as to whether certain titles apply to registered BAS Agents.  In order to provide some clarity, AAT approached the Chairman of the TPB, Mr Ian Taylor about exactly who is who in the zoo.
Mr Taylor advised the AAT that when the TPB reference ‘Tax Practitioners’ this includes registered BAS Agents.  “Tax Practitioners is a term we have used and promoted in the last couple of years and it includes BAS Agents, Tax Agents and Tax Financial Advisors collectively,” Mr Taylor said.
