Are you a financial adviser registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB)?
Do you need to know about TASA and the Code of Professional Conduct?
Under the requirements of the TPB it is essential that registered agents are able to abide by and demonstrate their knowledge of the Tax Agents Services Act (TASA), including the Code of Professional Conduct as part of the requirements for registration and to be able to meet their statutory obligations in relation to the provision of tax agent services.
Kaplan has partnered with The Tax Institute to deliver this course which meets the TPB’s requirements under TPB (I) 10/2011. Kaplan’s TASA 2009 and TPB Code of Professional Conduct course is for financial advisers who provide tax (financial) advice services and are registered with the TPB as a tax (financial) adviser.

Please note: Kaplan’s subject Tax for Financial Advising is a Board approved course in Australian taxation law and therefore includes a component in the TASA, including the Code.
