Persons providing a BAS service for a fee or other reward (other than employees) must be registered by the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).

A Business Activity Statement (BAS) service is a tax agent service that relates to:

  • ascertaining liabilities, obligations or entitlements of an entity that arises, or could arise, under a BAS provision; or
  • advising an entity about liabilities, obligations or entitlements of the entity or another entity that arise, or could arise, in their dealings with the Commissioner in relation to a BAS provision; and
  • representing an entity in their dealings with the Commissioner of Taxation; and
  • is provided in circumstances where the entity can reasonably be expected to rely on the service for either or both of the following purposes:

  • to satisfy liabilities or obligations that arise, or could arise, under a BAS provision;
  • to claim entitlements that arise, or could arise, under a BAS provision;
  • To claim entitlements that arise, or could arise, under a BAS provision.
  • where it is reasonable to expect an entity to rely on the service for either or both of the following purposes:

    1. To satisfy liabilities or obligations that arise or could arise under a BAS provision;

    2. to claim entitlements that arise or could arise under a BAS provision.

    This qualification is currently cited as meeting some of the educational requirements for registration (see Packaging Rules). Other conditions apply, including a designated period of experience.
