Transitional BAS Agents registration end on the 28th Feb 2013
If you have been in the BAS Agent system as a notifier or transitional (or for that matter a Standard application) then for renewals you will need to have the full education and experience requirements for being a BAS Agent.
If you have never been a BAS Agent before and you apply as a Transitional Application before 1 March 2013 then you can qualify as a BAS Agent by being "Competent" for a "Reasonable Period".
See the TPB website for all the requirements....
