About ABN BAS

Who is ABN BAS and how can they assist BAS and non-BAS Agents

ABN BAS is a registered BAS Agent that provides BAS services exclusively to ABN members and their clients.

ABN BAS shares four of the same directors as ABN, of which are registered Tax Agents and either Chartered Accountants or CPAs in their own right.

ABN BAS has been providing BAS services since the commencement of the BAS Agent legislation on 1 March, 2010. Even prior to this, ABN was very active in this space having offered a BAS certification service under the former S.251L regime since 2001.

As a registered BAS Agent in its own right, ABN BAS is the perfect resource for bookkeepers who wish to provide BAS services, whether you are an experienced BAS Agent, a newly registered Agent, or not a BAS Agent at all. 

ABN BAS holds BAS Agent number 91970004 and is listed on Tax Practitioner Board’s Online Tax and BAS Agent Register.
