TASA 2009 and The Code of Professional Conduct Course

Do you know your statutory obligations?



In order to register as a tax agent, BAS agent or tax (financial) adviser with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) an applicant must demonstrate a required level of proficiency in the contents of the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (TASA), including the code of Professional Conduct (Code) as part of the qualifications required for registration.

TASA 2009 was enacted to ensure that tax agent services provided by tax agents, BAS agent services are provided to the public in accordance with appropriate standards of professional and ethical conduct. It established the TPB as the relevant regulatory body with responsibilities to ensure that those who are required to be registered are registered, to set conditions for registration, and implement a range of sanctions that can be applied for any breaches of statutory obligations. Along with the Tax Agent Services Regulations 2009, TASA 2009 forms the core of the Tax Agent Services Regime (TASR) in Australia.

The TASA 2009, including the Code of Professional Conduct online module covers the required topics as listed in the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) Information Sheet TPB(I) 10/2011 and is approved by the TPB for the purposes of meeting the relevant qualification requirement regarding TASA2009, for the purposes of registration with the TPB as a tax agent, BAS agent or tax (financial) adviser.
