Managing your mental health and wellbeing
The Tax Practitioners Board has put some temporary measures in place to help manage your mental health and wellbeing if you are struggling with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Accepting a small amount of educative health and wellbeing activities undertaken until 30 June 2021. This could include activities such as attending webinars about how to manage stress and self-care.
- Removing the 25% cap for relevant technical/professional reading activity in the TPB’s continuing professional education (CPE) policy until 30 June 2021. Just remember there are a range of options to explore and undertake CPE offerings, including face-to-face sessions and online, so keep a log book detailing all the activities undertaken.
- Waiving the requirement to lodge your annual declaration. If your annual declaration is due on or before 30 June 2021, you do not have to complete it until 2022 or 2023 (if your registration renewal is due in 2022).
