Tax Practitioners Board.
The Tax Practitioner's Board (TPB) administers specific educational and experience requirements for registration of BAS Agents and sets specific assessment requirements that must be met.

This unit is designed to satisfy these requirements if undertaken as part of the Approved Course Program which includes the FNSBKG405A unit and/or an online invigilated Challenge Test - administered by the Tax Institute. This satisfies the TPB requirement that: 'at least 40% of assessment is achieved through an independently supervised test/exam'.
