Are you clear on the circumstances where a payroll service provider must be a registered tax practitioner? These include Payroll Service Providers who deliver payroll outsourcing services in Australia.
Part of being a registered tax agent means doing the following for your clients;
- A client outsources their entire payroll and accounts work to a payroll service provider.
- 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.
The Tax Practitioners Board have put together a 10-page document detailing all the criteria, which you can view here.
