"Has anyone had any action from the Tax Agents Board on unregistered tax agents?
I have referred a couple of situations where the entity charges a fee for 'information' or 'assistance' which requires an analysis and interpretation of tax laws to a specific arrangement. To me this is tax advice. Yet the Board seems to be disinterested unless whoever charges the fee actually lodges tax returns. Apparently the Board takes a 'practical approach' whatever that is. We don't do returns so maybe we can just cancel our tax registration?"
