This qualification reflects accounting job roles in financial services and other industries requiring accounting support functions. Persons providing a BAS service for fee or other reward (other than employees) must be registered by the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). Under the Tax Services Act 2009, the Certificate IV in Accounting qualification is the minimum formal education requirement for registered BAS (Business Activity Statement) agents. This qualification is currently cited as meeting the educational requirements for registration. Other conditions apply including a designated period of experience.
Note: Although this qualification meets the requirement for registration as a BAS agent, it does not provide an automatic right to work as a BAS agent or any other financial service provider. Other conditions apply including a designated period of experience. Persons seeking BAS agent registration should check current registration requirements with the Tax Practitioners Board as this is reviewed regularly.
