A Tax Agent deals with accounting work relating to taxation issues. You might work with individual clients or with businesses or organisations. Tax Agents might provide advice on taxation or help clients prepare their tax returns. You might suggest ways to minimise the amount of tax paid or help clients with a plan to pay off a tax debt.
Tax Agents should have a strong understanding of taxation issues. You should be able to communicate well with clients and understand their individual circumstances. Tax Agents should have strong attention to detail and be able to use analytical and problem solving skills. You’ll need to be organised and have excellent time management.
