What is the benefit of using a registered tax agent RTA?

  • The tax system in Australia is becoming complicated. If you are planning to do the tax return on your own, you need to have some extra knowledge on how your earnings work and about new rules and regulations imposed by Australian Tax Office (ATO) from time to time. A RTA is up to date with current legislations and practices and specialised in related taxation and commercial law.
  • The cost of having a return completed by an agent is deductible from the subsequent tax return.
  • When you prepare your tax return through a tax agent, you get more time to lodge your tax return. But if you decide to file on your own, the ATO deadline is October 31. Late lodgement can incur penalties.
