Explanatory Papers

TPB Explanatory Papers (TPB (EP)) provide a detailed explanation of our interpretation of the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (TASA), Tax Agent Services Regulations 2009 (TASR) and the Tax Agent Services (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009.

They are designed to assist tax practitioners, the relevant institutions, professional associations, potential registrants and the wider community to understand the factors that provide the basis for our approach to the application of the TASA and associated legislation.
