Professional Indemnity for Bookkeepers and BAS Agents

Bookkeepers have a tendency to put their client first. Often the most efficient, knowledgeable and proficient when it comes to financial matters, Bookkeepers use these skills to benefit their patrons, and may not have the time to use their talents for themselves.

 At BizCover we believe this professionalism should be rewarded rather than made a liability. Allow us to do the work when it comes to your business insurance so you can continue to focus on your clients.

 Our bookkeeping clients have lauded our service for its speed, convenience and exceptional follow up. At BizCover, we prioritise you so that you may prioritise professionalism. 

From the 1st of July 2011, the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) requires BAS Agents to have Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance. Professional Indemnity insurance coverage helps to reduce the risk that a client’s losses (due to the conduct of the agent in the provision or failure to provide tax agent services) not be compensated, due to the agent having inadequate financial resources or for any other reason as far as this is practically possible.

The minimum amount of PI cover that BAS Agents need to maintain should be based on turnover. The Board requires that agents have a minimum amount of cover as specified below, provided at all times the amount of cover obtained is adequate for the risks associated with the provision of tax agent services and BAS services in the circumstances of the agent.

Tier Turnover from the provision of BAS services Minimum aggregate amount of cover*
1 Up to $75,000 (excluding GST) $250,000 cover inclusive of legal and defence costs
2 $75,001 – $500,000 (excluding GST) $500,000 cover inclusive of legal and defence costs
3 Over $500,000 (excluding GST) $1,000,000 cover inclusive of legal and defence costs

* Please note that what is an appropriate amount of cover for an agent may in fact be more than what is set as the minimum requirement.

To learn more about the PII requirements as outlined by TPB, please refer to the Professional Indemnity Insurance Explanatory Paper.

Bookkeeping S Browne 2014-03-26 I think the service is excellent because I don't have to remember anything myself. I am prompted when the insurance is due so that I have no problems with being uninsured through forgetting to renew. The price is OK. Probably not the cheapest though. 5
