Course recognition

The H&R Block taxation training course is industry recognised throughout Australia by other tax agents and accountants, but is not accredited. For Certified Practicing Accountants, our course is accepted by the Tax Practitioners Board to count towards their required 30 hours professional development.

Students who successfully complete this course are awarded an H&R Block certificate of achievement however this certificate alone does not qualify recipients to be Registered Tax Agents nor does it enable them to charge a fee for preparing tax returns as an individual.

As there is an increasing need for qualified income tax consultants, for top graduates of the course job interviews are available with H&R Block for seasonal employment.
