Becoming a Registered BAS Agent

If you want to provide BAS services for a fee or other reward, you must be registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).

Upon gaining the recommended qualifications and experience, you can apply for registration as long as you:

  1. Are at least 18 years old.
  2. Are a ‘fit and proper person’, meaning:
    1. You have a good reputation in the community.
    2. You haven’t been convicted of serious offences including tax offences, or other offences involving some sort of fraud or dishonesty.
    3. You’ve never been in prison.
    4. You aren’t an undischarged bankrupt.
  3. Get (and maintain) professional indemnity insurance.
    1. Minimum level of insurance depends on turnover of the BAS agent services business, but can be between $250,000 and $1 million worth of insurance. Depending on your circumstances, premiums may start at about $40 a month.
