1. In which format are digital books delivered?
Both the digital Tax Summary and SMSF Manual are available via Adobe digital editions, which is free to download. We do not provide a PDF version as we need to protect our licensed products.
2. Does Membership include CPD subscriptions?
CPDpro is an extra subscription to professional membership (note that professional membership is a pre-requisite to CPDpro).
3. Do we offer instalments? If not, why?
We do not offer instalments yet but we are working on to find a suitable system to allow this. Note that our association is a not-for-profit membership organisation with an aim to keep our prices as low as possible in support of our members.
4. Why is membership pro-rated?
Membership is pro-rated on the basis of a common annual renewal date. Apart from being easy to remember, this also provides potential members with an opportunity to trial membership for a smaller cost.
5. What is the difference between a registered tax agent and a non-registered tax agent?
There are significant penalties for anyone providing tax agent services for a fee or reward or advertising tax agent services while unregistered. Additionally, under the safe harbour provisions in the law, taxpayers using a registered tax agent may not be liable to some administrative penalties imposed by the ATO in certain circumstances.
