BAS Agent Explanation

If you are registered for GST and contract out your Bookkeeping requirements the Bookkeeper must now be registered as a “BAS Agent” or working for a company that is registered as a BAS Agent..

Registration is not automatic and requires:

  • Supervised experience
  • An educational qualification (minimum Cert IV in Financial Services)
  • A character test
  • Holding Professional Indemnity Insurance

Both Terry George and Karen Sturm of Port Adelaide Bookkeeping have been Registered BAS Agents since the scheme began.
