As a CPA practitioner, we are not only bound by Tax Agent Practitioner Regulations but also with Accounting Professional and Ethical Standards and CPA Australia Standards. This will ensure a professional services level to the public.
When we perform our services we are bound by a fiduciary duty – a legal obligation to act in the best interest of our clients.
We provide all tax agent services for individual and business clients. The tax agent services for business covers:
- Sole trader,
- Self-managed Superannuation Fund.
Before engaging to any tax service provider, you need to ask them 3 questions:
- Do you have your own tax agent licence or somebody else licence?
- Do you have your own public accountant licence or somebody else licence?
- Do you have your own professional indemnity insurance or somebody else insurance?
To find out whether you are dealing with a tax practitioner or not, you can check the registration of the agent through Tax Agent Practitioner Board (TPB), http://www.tpb.gov.au/tpb/agent_register.aspx.
By having the above checked, you are covered if something goes wrong. By law, all tax agents that offer their services to the public need to maintain the above 3 items.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any other query.
