Benefits of Taking Tax Preparation Course

8 min read

There's no doubt that the outbreak of COVID-19 around the world has been bad news for the employment market. There have been huge job losses and pay cuts in both Australia and overseas, and many customer-facing roles have been compromised due to the health risks of face-to-face contact.

But one career that has remained consistently stable, not to mention safe, is tax accountancy. With accesses to remote and online platforms for client consultations this is one career that has remained unaffected by the COVID-19 outbreak.  

Despite the global changes that have taken place, one thing remains true: people still need expert help filing their taxes. In fact, many Australians need help more than ever before as they face unprecedented changes to their tax status and need to consider new types of deductions in their annual return.  

So if you're good with numbers and like working with people, there's never been a better time to consider training as a tax consultant by doing the H&R Block Income Tax Course.

What's involved in being a tax consultant?  

A tax consultant focuses on the preparation and lodging of tax returns, and knows all the best ways to legitimately help their clients get the best possible return at tax time.  

To be a successful tax consultant you need to be really good with numbers and have a great eye for detail. It also involves working with people who are sometimes quite stressed and disorganised at tax time, so it helps if you have a friendly and calm disposition and an organised approach to your work.  

Why should I do the H&R Block Income Tax Course?  

Easy! This is the best, most comprehensive way to get the start you need to become a tax consultant, created by Australia's biggest and most trusted tax accountancy service provider.

  • Understanding all Income Sources including Dividends, Trusts and Foreign income
  • Comprehensive look at deductions including depreciation and motor vehicle expenses
  • Rental income and deductions  
  • Tax Offsets

Here's what our previous student have to say about the H&R Block income tax course.


"As my children enter their school age, I decided to take H&R Block Tax Course to brush up my accounting skill as a friend recommendation. I have found the course informative, interesting, and well structured. It provides a balance between legal concepts and practical workshops. The course instructors are knowledgeable, switched-on, yet patient.  

What most interesting is the fact the course material available in electronic format, with pre-recorded videos and Inklings eBooks. It is highly convenient and logistically well thought-out. I was able to catch up my learnings, and look-up information in various settings outside my set hours. When the Covid-19 pandemic struck, I was able to pivot to fully online learning easily and swiftly via additional web conference.

After the course, I was offered to join H&R Block, which provides a flexible working schedule.    As a junior staff, I received a lot of support from my office manager to ensure and maximise the clients entitlements, and that makes a lot people happy."  Anna Nguyen  (Pakenham Office)
