Objective: This online course is designed to guide your journey to BAS agent registration and impart an understanding of registered practitioners' compliance obligations under the Code of Professional Conduct imposed by the TASA 2009. The course also focuses on the requirements surrounding maintaining BAS agent registration, emphasising education and the CPE obligations practitioners must comply with under the code.

A “BAS service” is defined in the Tax Agent Services Act 2009, the overarching legal framework governing the practitioners. BAS services relate to ascertaining or advising about the liabilities, obligations, or entitlements of a client under a BAS provision or representing a client in their dealings with the Commissioner of Taxation about a BAS provision and where it is reasonable to expect a client will rely on the service to satisfy liabilities or obligations or to claim entitlements under a BAS provision.
