BAS Agent Skill Set

The BAS Agent Skill Set course incorporates the practical elements that will equip students with the necessary units required for BAS Agent Registration if you currently already hold a FNS40215 Certificate IV in Bookkeeping or FNS40615 Certificate IV in Accounting or Higher Accounting qualification. The course is delivered by flexible distance learning so you can study at home or work at your own pace and students are able to complete their qualification at a faster rate, but this will be dependent on the factors which include external commitments, relevant skills, knowledge and experience within the area of study and motivation and dedication to course studies and their outcome.

This qualification is designed to reflect accounting jobs and other industries requiring accounting support functions and the roles of contract bookkeepers and employees performing bookkeeping tasks.

  • Truly Professional Skills Based Training by Working Professional Bookkeepers & Accountants
  • Includes MYOB Software
  • Includes the BAS Agent Registration Required Units
  • Online & Correspondence Training including all Online Materials 

The role of a bookkeeper has many functions with duties including the establishment and maintenance of a manual or computerised bookkeeping system, completing financial statements, data entry for Accounts payable and Receivable and in some businesses, includes elements of payroll processing.

The bookkeeper’s role can also extend to identifying items required for Business Activity Statements (BAS). Persons providing a BAS service must be registered by the Tax Practitioner’s Board (conditions apply) and a Certificate IV Qualification in Bookkeeping/Accounting that includes the required 2 units that we provide in our qualification, is currently cited as meeting the educational requirements for registration as a BAS agent.

In addition, flexible adult learning encourages students to continue the course at their own pace without restrictions as to when and how you complete the course. Therefore, students are able to continue their life roles and incorporate their study into time slots that suit their lifestyles. This also allows those that are working either as an employee or subcontractor to continue to earn money or charge for billable hours, which further serve to reduce the ʻrealʼ course costs. Students have 12 months in which to complete all of their assessments.
