Please note

  • Registered BAS Agents do not qualify as Affiliates and must apply as Members.
  • AAT Australia applicants seeking to access the reduced experience concession (from 1,400 to 1,000 hours) to register as a BAS Agent also must apply as a Member.
  • Affiliate members wishing to renew their PI Insurance obtained through AAT Australia must advance to Member level.


Affiliate members should advance to Member level once they are eligible to do so. The move will enable us to provide more focussed support and services appropriate to specific membership level.
