The qualifications to register as a tax agent
Registration as a tax agent with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) ensures that tax agents:
- have the qualifications and experience required to provide tax agent services
- meet the TPB 'fit and proper' requirements
- have appropriate professional indemnity insurance cover to protect consumers.
The Tax Agent Program allows you to satisfy the first of the requirements listed above to register as a tax agent. Depending on your prior qualifications, you may be required to complete a Course in Australian Tax Law and/or a Course in Commercial Law approved by the TPB. Our Tax Agent Program comprises both of these TPB approved courses.
You must contact the TPB to determine what their requirements for you will be. We suggest you view the TPB website: Registering as an individual tax agent.
