The AIQS is an industry body that assists its members to maintain compliance with industry regulations and Australian Standards ensuring a high quality of service.
In addition to being accredited by the AIQS, it is also important to check that your firm are registered tax agents with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). The TPB is the national body responsible for the registration and regulation of tax agents ensuring compliance with the Tax Agents Services Act 2009 (TASA). Quantity Surveyors need to be registered tax agents to complete tax depreciation schedules for investment properties.
