SAICA Accreditation as Tax and BAS agents

SAICA Tax Practitioners Board Accreditation

SAICA has been accredited as a recognised tax agent association and a recognised BAS (Business Activity Statement) agent association following our application in September 2016.

The rationale for the application was to allow SAICA members in Australia to register as tax and BAS agents once they have met the TPB registration requirements.
