ABA - New continuing professional education (CPE) requirements

Commence from 1 July 2022

As you will no doubt be aware, the Tax Practitioner Board (TPB) has made changes to the CPE requirements for tax and BAS agents which commence from 1 July 2022.

Australian Bookkeepers Association (ABA) has reviewed its requirements around CPE and have made changes so as to align with the TPB requirements. The new CPE requirements for ABA effective from 1 July 2022 are:

Every Voting Member in each triennium following their admittance to Membership (CPE

Year) must:

  • complete at least 90 hours of continuing professional education within the meaning of the TAS Legislation, with a minimum of 20 hours of continuing professional education in each 12-month period;
  • of the required hours, 75% must be structured continuing professional education, and 25% may be unstructured continuing professional education; and
  • of the required hours, no more than 10% health and well-being activities can be included as continuing professional education within the meaning of the TAS Legislation.

The Association considers CPE to be any educational activity that maintains, develops or promotes your bookkeeping skills, knowledge or attributes. The Association recognises these CPE activities and those, which contribute to the overall efficiency, development or professionalism of you or your business.
