Fellowship is the NTAA's Practising Certificate
NTAA members can also apply for Fellowship for only $264 per year and receive a Practising Certificate, which enables them to practice as an "NTAA Public Accountant". The Fellowship is an annual subscription that is in addition to the membership.
In order to be qualified for a Fellowship, members will need:
- a valid and current practising certificate from CPA Australia, the ICAA or the IPA;
at least three years full time experience as a practitioner; and
- to hold a recognised degree with an accounting major.
The benefits of becoming an NTAA Fellow
Holders of Practising Certificates can use the name "NTAA Tax Practitioner" on signage, letterhead, business cards and the like. Fellows may also use the post nominal NTAAF.
To save Fellows unnecessary paperwork, we maintain a register of the number of hours Fellows spend attending NTAA seminars. Details are available on request.
Fellows are accredited to witness the signing of certain declarations and reports. Please contact us for more information.
New SMSF auditor registration requirements
Prior to 1 July 2013, an NTAA Fellow may have been authorised to audit SMSFs. Due to recent changes, this is no longer the case.

Will we become like the other tax bodies? No!
Holders of practising certificates find that:
we only do TAX! The NTAA is purely focused on issues that affect wage earners and family businesses in tax, FBT, GST, CGT and Superannuation; and
the NTAA does not want to intrude into your practice or dictate the way in which you run your business, nor will we put excessive requirements on your trust funds.
