Annual declaration for BAS agents

Annual declaration for BAS agents

You must complete your annual declaration to demonstrate and provide assurance to us that you meet the ongoing registration requirements, including:

There is no payment required for the annual declaration process.


When is your annual declaration due

Proof of identity checks for individuals

Lodging your annual declaration

Failing to lodge your annual declaration


When is your annual declaration due?

Your annual declaration is due before the anniversary of your registration expiry date. It is due each year, except the year you renew your registration. To check your registration expiry date, visit the TPB Register.

We will send you an email to inform you when your annual declaration is due. It's important that you keep your contact details up to date with us, including your email address.

Example

Jane's BAS agent registration expires on 1 May 2021. Jane must complete an annual declaration before 1 May 2019 and another annual declaration before 1 May 2020. She is not required to complete an annual declaration in 2021 but must renew her registration at least 30 days before her registration expires.

 

Proof of identity checks for individuals

If you are a registered individual BAS agent, you must complete a one-off proof of identity (POI) process when completing your annual declaration. This process helps protect your identity and aligns our processes with Australian Government standards.

For more information about the POI process including a list of acceptable documents to satisfy POI, refer to Proof of identity checks for tax practitioners

 

Lodging your annual declaration

Go to My Profile to complete and submit your annual declaration. You must submit your annual declaration up to six weeks before the due date.

 

Failing to lodge your annual declaration

Under the Code of Professional Conduct you must respond to requests and directions from the Board in a timely, responsible and reasonable manner.

Failing to lodge your annual declaration by the due date may result in a sanction, including suspension or termination of your registration.
