Annual declaration for tax agents
You must complete an annual declaration to demonstrate that you meet ongoing registration requirements as a tax agent, including:
- having professional indemnity insurance cover
- undertaking continuing professional education (individuals only)
- satisfying fit and proper requirements, and
- meeting your personal tax obligations.
The annual declaration form replaces the professional indemnity insurance notification form that you were previously required to complete each year.
When is your annual declaration due?
Your annual declaration is due on the anniversary of your registration renewal date. You need to complete your annual declaration with us each year, other than in the year you need to renew your registration.
You can find your renewal date on the TPB Register.
We will send you an email approximately 45 days before the due date to let you know when your annual declaration is due and how you complete it. It is important you act on the email we send you about completing your annual declaration as failing to complete it may be considered a breach of the Code of Professional Conduct.
You can access your annual declaration form when we notify you by visiting www.tpb.gov.au/myprofile

Provides a quick look at what is covered in the annual declaration form that you need to complete.
Example: How the annual declaration and registration renewal fit together
Brian’s tax agent registration is due for renewal by 1 September 2019. He must complete an annual declaration by 1 September 2017 and then another annual declaration by 1 September 2018.
As Brian’s registration is due for renewal date by 1 September 2019, he is not required to complete an annual declaration in 2019 but he will need to complete an application to renew his registration.
Keep your details up-to-date
As we will email you when your annual declaration is due, it is important that your contact details, including your email address are up to date at all times so that our reminders reach you on a timely basis. For more information refer to Change of tax agent details or circumstances
