They maintain a register of all Agents and you can search the register anytime here.
But what’s the difference?
A registered Tax Agent can attend to the preparation and lodgement of all taxation documents.
A registered BAS Agent can only attend to the preparation and lodgement of a Business Activity Statement (BAS) or Instalment Activity Statement (IAS)
The Tax Chic is registered Tax Agent!
I’ve read many stories of BAS Agents promoting themselves as a Tax Agent, a recent case saw a company fined $81,500 for unlawfully providing and advertising tax agent services.
I highly recommend you check to see that your advisor is listed on the register, or better yet, come and see The Tax Chic!
