Advisers should be planning and ahead and looking to renew their registration in December to beat the rush of 13,000 others who need to renew their tax registration by 1 January, according to the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).
TPB chair Ian Taylor said processing delays could impact advisers who planned to leave re-registration until the last minute, and said steps should be taken early to ensure the process would be smooth.
“Complete your statement of relevant experience now, especially if it needs to be verified by a supervisor,” he said.
“Advisers who renew early will be registered for at least three years from their current expiry.”
Taylor said advisers should seek direction on the TPB website in the lead up to the renewal period, and could register for TPB webinars on the renewal process throughout November and December.
