Part of FNS40615 (Certificate IV in Accounting) and FNS40215 (Certificate IV in Bookkeeping)

BAS and Payroll

What do the BAS and Payroll units involve?

Successful completion of these specific units is a requirement of the Tax Practitioners Board  for continued registration as a BAS agent.

Please note: the BAS and Payroll units are automatically included in the FNS40215 Certificate IV in Bookkeeping and FNS40615 Certificate IV in Accounting, however many professionals working in the industry only require completion of these units specifically for compliance purposes. Consequently, we offer these units separately to enable you to complete them online or workshop based, without disrupting your work schedule.

    Online Learning – any time, any place, with maximum flexibility

    Online learning allows you to start a course when and where it is convenient for you to study. It is particularly popular with stay-at-home parents, full time employees, or anyone seeking maximum flexibility because you can choose the pace you study (fast or slow).

    You are very well supported throughout your course. A dedicated Online education support team allows you to discuss your course work on a one-on-one basis with a specialist Accounting Trainer. Your Accounting Trainer is happy to contact you via phone, Skype, Teamviewer, or email between Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm as you progress through the course, so you definitely won’t feel alone. You also have access to Online discussion forums via Monarch’s state-of-the-art learning management system providing access to an online learning community of fellow students.

  • Duration

    Is there a maximum course completion time?

    Yes – you have up to 6 months to complete the BAS and Payroll units, and many complete it in less time. 

    We find our students complete the BAS and Payroll units of competency in varying time frames. It really does depend on your life situation, and time availability.

    Is there a minimum course completion time?

    No – there is no minimum course time-frame. 

    Students can complete the qualification as quickly as they choose.

    What is the average course completion time-frame?

    Volume of learning: We have found students that are genuinely motivated to progress through the BAS and Payroll units are able to complete the units of competency in as little as 2-3 months. Other students that have no experience or understanding of key concepts of BAS and Payroll take closer to 6 months.The key factors that influence course completion is a student’s experience, time availability and work rate.

    Monarch Institute recognises Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) which takes into account the knowledge and skills you have already gained through your previous education and work history, attributing this to your BAS and Payroll units of competency. This may be through formal or informal training and can result in credits towards your qualification. More information about RPL is contained in Monarch’s Student Information Guide

    You can enrol in the Certificate IV in Accounting, or the Diploma of Accounting with Monarch Institute as a study pathway, after or during the completion of your BAS and Payroll units of competency.
