Principles of Assessment
Based on Clauses 1.8 – 1.12 from the Australian Standards Quality Assurance’s (ASQA) Standards for Registered Training Organizations (RTO) 2015, the learner would be assessed based on the following principles: Fairness – (1) the individual learner’s needs are considered in the assessment process, (2) where appropriate, reasonable adjustments are applied by the RTO to take into account the individual leaner’s needs and, (3) the RTO informs the leaner about the assessment process, and provides the learner with the opportunity to challenge the result of the assessment and be reassessed if necessary. Flexibility – assessment is flexible to the individual learner by; (1) reflecting the learner’s needs, (2) assessing competencies held by the learner no matter how or where they have been acquired and, (3) the unit of competency and associated assessment requirements, and the individual. Validity – (1) requires that assessment against the unit/s of competency and the associated assessment requirements covers the broad range of skills and knowledge, (2) assessment of knowledge and skills is integrated with their practical application, (3) assessment to be based on evidence that demonstrates tat a leaner could demonstrate these skills and knowledge in other similar situations and, (4) judgement of competence is based on evidence of learner performance that is aligned to the unit/s of competency and associated assessment requirements. Reliability – evidence presented for assessment is consistently interpreted and assessment results are comparable irrespective of the assessor conducting the assessment
Rules of Evidence
Validity   – the assessor is assured that the learner has the skills, knowledge and attributes, as described in the module of unit of competency and associated assessment requirements. Sufficiency – the assessor is assured that the quality, quantity and relevance of the assessment evidence enables a judgement to be made of a learner’s competency. Authenticity – the assessor is assured that the evidence presented for assessment is the learner’s own work. This would mean that any form of plagiarism or copying of other’s work may not be permitted and would be deemed strictly as a ‘Not Yet Competent’ grading. Currency – the assessor is assured that the assessment evidence demonstrates current competency. This requires the assessment evidence to be from the present or the very recent past.

Question 1: Prepare an income tax return form for the following taxpayer
Your client David Lucas (Role played by your assessor), is a single taxpayer. David is a bank manager and has approached to you to prepare his 2017-2018 income tax return. Before the scheduled appointment with you, some relevant income and expense information has been provided as follows, Salary: $55 630; Allowances $230; Reportable fringe benefits$4000. Employer’s ABN: 12 345 678 910 PAYG tax paid $10 560Unit trust distribution was $2264, which had franking credit of $ 113. There was also a gross capital gain of $260 that was fully discountable.David earned a $47 interest from an overseas bank account but he only received $40 after they subtracted a foreign tax credit of $7.Other income: bank interest $84; fully franked dividends $240; unfranked dividends $50.He received refunds of $450 from Medicare and his health insurer over the year.David owns an investment property that earned $13 240 rent. The expenses were: interest $10700, agent commission $910, repairs $128, rates $930 and advertising $45. When he bought it three years ago, the building itself cost $ 212 000 and at the end of last year the appliances had a WDV of $ 1285 in the low value pool. During the year David drove his 2.5 –litre car 85 km on work- related travel. He also spent $320 on union fees, $42 on laundering his grey trousers, $400 on Internet access (half of which related to his work), $45 on a text book, $80 on donations to the Red Cross and $2380 on hospital/doctors’ bills. Private health insurance cost $1230 and he did not receive any upfront Government contribution for his health insurance premium     Instructions: Not all the required documents are provided by your client, therefore, you are required to make an appointment with your client (your assessor) to gather all the required information and then prepare for the income tax return for him. From the ATO website ( you can download the Tax return for individuals 2018 form in Portable Document Format (PDF) NAT 2541. Based on the information above, you need to submit a soft copy of the tax return completing all relevant details for the 2017-18 year, specifically pages 2- 7 inclusive. In place of the front page, attach the cover sheet and show all workings, calculate the taxpayer’s taxable income and tax payable/refundable for the financial year ended 30 June 2018。 Australian tax is levied annually on the taxable income of a taxpayer. Taxable income is calculated on the basis of assessable income less allowable deductions. Once taxable income is worked out, tax on taxable income, tax offsets, Medicare levy and tax credits need to be included to calculate the tax payable. The actual tax liability is worked out when the annual income tax return is assessed. The PAYG instalments for the year are credited against your assessed tax to determine whether there is
a tax payment or a refund. In order to calculate the tax payments for individuals, you may find the following information to be useful, Individual tax rates for residents for the period for 2017-18 can be found from Levy Surcharge gains tax Benefits tax (FBT) and Rebates To complete the task, you are to take the role of a tax agent and need to schedule two sessions with your client (assessor) either by phone or in person to complete the enquiry session and the result explanation session. Each session should be approximately 10mins in duration. For the enquiry session, you need to: describe the key sources of information and data required to calculate taxable income. Ask for any further information you need, for example, insurance company details, employer’s ABN; Explain your key responsibilities under the Tax Agent Services Act (TASA) and Tax Agent Services Regulations (TASR) as a tax agent to your customers; describe the procedures relating to the preparation of tax documentation for individual taxpayers.     For the result explanation session, it should be done after you complete all the calculations and filing. During this session, you need to:     explain the rules and principles of Australian tax law and main concepts included in this case, e.g. Low-income benefits, franking credit, car expense. administrative aspects of the taxes identified above including documentation, tax collection and withholding mechanisms, assessments, obligations, rulings, penalties and audits outline the key accounting principles and practices relevant to the preparation of tax documentation for individual taxpayers.
After preparing your tax return and before lodgement, you will need to seek the tax agent specialist (i.e., Role played by your assessor) advice and confirmation.

ATO may process his return, but documents and information for national affordability scheme refundable tax offsets must be provided by Daniel. Now Daniel approached to you for seeking advice on the audit.

Please insert the following text in the subject field: Attention XXX for XXX Audit. This will ensure quick allocation and fast processing of the information.
