Attention Australian franchisees - New continuing professional education policy for registered agents
The Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) has launched its continuing professional education (CPE) policy for registered tax agents and BAS agents (registered agents).
This policy assists you to meet your obligations under the Code of Professional Conduct in regard to maintaining the knowledge and skills relevant to the services you provide.
From 1 July 2012, you should begin or carry on your CPE in line with this policy, which includes keeping evidence of the CPE you have completed. When applying to renew your registration from 1 July 2013, the TPB will ask if you are complying with the CPE policy.
Visit your local Small Business Accounting franchise for any questions.
