All tax agents need to review their structures and procedures to ensure they are not in breach of any of the requirements of the new regime.

- adequate supervision and control of employees and contractors
- what you need to do if you are outsourcing to related entities, Australian entities or offshore entities
- updating engagement letters and ensuring instructions are adequate.
