An unregistered bookkeeper can cost you far more than you save. Visit the Tax Practitioners’ Board for more information.
A Registered BAS Agent is the most trusted professional bookkeeper approved by the ATO
As of March 1st 2010 the ATO regulated the bookkeeping industry. As a result, all bookkeepers providing a BAS Service must register.
What does that mean for you?
In the past, a bookkeeper could do a MYOB or Quicken course and start charging for their services. Due to their lack of experience, they often left a mess. As a result, the client could do nothing except find someone else to fix it.
This can be expensive and emotionally draining.
Are you worried?
If you are concerned about the condition of your data file or not sure if you’re up-to-date with the ATO, we can help.
During our initial business health check we can let you know exactly where you stand.
To register with the Tax Practitioners Board, a bookkeeper must pass the following requirements first. Those requirements include;
A minimum of a Cert IV in Financial Services (Bookkeeping or Accounting).
1,000 hours supervised experience lodging BAS in the past 4 years.
Minimum of $1,000,000 professional indemnity insurance.
Maintaining knowledge and skills, taking relevant courses and keeping up to date with laws.
Professional code of conduct
We are under a Code of Conduct. Breaches can mean up to $137,500 in fines and penalties. Or even loss of registration. The code covers five areas;
Honesty and integrity
Acting honestly, complying with taxation laws personally, trustworthy dealing with money.
Acting in best interest of the client and management of conflict of interest that may arise.
Not disclosing information to a third party without client’s permission or legal duty to do so.
Taking reasonable care to ascertain client state of affairs and correctly apply GST and taxation laws.
Timeliness, professional indemnity insurance, and correct administration of laws.
