Tax professionals

Research conducted by the ATO has shown that there are common factors shared among successful small businesses. One of those factors is seeking advice from, and using the expertise of their accountants or trusted professional advisers. 

Accountants and professional advisers have access to a range of tools. Combined with their professional expertise, they help you with your business and identify areas of business improvement. They can expand and offer more detail and advice on the topics covered in this course. They can also work with you to build a tailored action plan for your business success.

If you want someone to prepare or lodge your tax returns, notices or statements, or to provide you with tax advice, you should ensure they’re registered with the Tax Practitioners Board. Tax practitioners include tax agents and BAS agents.

You can check the TPB Register to see if a tax practitioner is registered.
