If you are a registered BAS Agent or Tax Agent, you are obliged to advise both the ATO and the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) of any change of your contact details.
Some BAS/Tax Agents are under the impression that if they advise the TPB of any change of their details, that the TPB will automatically advise the ATO of this information. This is not the case! You must advise both the ATO & the TPB of your details changes in order to keep them up to date. The TPB only advises the ATO of approved or cancelled registrations. They don’t exchange any changes in personal contact data.
The contact data you must advise the ATO & TPB about include:
- Postal address
- Telephone number
- Fax number
- Email address
To advise the ATO, you can call them on 1800 443 846.
To advise the TPB of any contact details changes, go to their website www.tpb.gov.au, select Agent Log-in, enter your log-in details and then choose Your Profile. Enter your contact detail changes as required. You can also send an email to the TPB via firstname.lastname@example.org to advise them of any changes.
