If you’re a registered BAS agent and not covered by an employer policy, you’re obliged to have your own Professional Indemnity insurance to comply with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) regulations, as of July 1 2011.

As a registered BAS agent, the Tax Practitioners Board also require you to have a minimum amount of insurance cover, based on your total turnover, as outlined in the following table:

The benefits of your BAS agent insurance policy

When dealing with other people’s finances, it’s important to protect your own. A Professional Indemnity policy will protect you, and your reputation, by providing the following:

  • Scope of Cover:  Policy wording, specific to Bookkeeping/BAS agent/Tax Agents, to provide cover should a breach in your professional duty, while conducting your services, results a claim against you.
  • Persons covered:  The agent, directors, partners and employees are covered, as are any contractors who perform work for which the policyholder is liable.
  • Exclusions: This policy does not exclude contractor cover and actually extends cover to the contractor subject to the terms of the policy.
  • Excess: There is a $500 excess on this policy, exceeding TPB requirements (maximum of $1,000).
  • Insurance provider: The insurer is an APRA approved insurer.
  • Automatic Fidelity Cover: $100,000 sub-limit automatically provided (not included for sole traders)

Your Professional Indemnity insurance also gives you automatic protection for the following Tax Practitioners Board’s recommended requirements:

  • Fraud/dishonesty
  • Legal/defence costs
  • One Automatic reinstatement
