How to make sure that the person doing your accounts and BAS is a BAS Agent.
Did you know that a person, partnership or company cannot charge a fee for preparing your Business Activity Statement (BAS) unless they are a registered BAS Agent with the Tax Practitioners Board?
The Tax Agent Services Act 2009 and Tax Agent Services Regulations 2009 were introduced last year and to be registered as a BAS Agent one must have the necessary education and work experience to complete a BAS.
You can check the BAS Agent Register to make sure that the person preparing your accounts and lodging your BAS return are a registered Tax or BAS Agent.
Both Kelly Migro and E-Accountant Pty Ltd are BAS Agents. We are able to lodge your BAS returns electronically whether you are using MYOB, Xero or an excel spreadsheet.
