Proof of identity checks

You must undergo a proof of identity process when you:

  • apply to register as an individual tax agent, BAS agent or tax (financial) adviser; or
  • complete your annual declaration as a registered individual tax agent, BAS agent or tax (financial) adviser.

This one-off process helps protect your identity and aligns our processes with Australian Government standards.
