Part of being a registered tax agent means doing the following for your clients;

- A payroll service provider offers a help desk which provides customised advice to assist their client to meet a specific tax outcome.
- A payroll service provider offers tax-related advice to their client that is specific to the client’s circumstances.
- A payroll service provider prepares and/or lodges documents with the ATO on behalf of their client.
- A payroll service provider deals with the Commissioner on behalf of their client.
