One of our specialisations is the taking care of your accounting and book keeping. You can operate your business knowing that your client account funds are being looked after in the most professional way.
You also receive access to:
Sales reports – keep your finger on the pulse of your business with access to our comprehensive and flexible sales reports.
Monthly settlement statements – summarises your sales and income for the month as well as your outstanding commissions.
Outstanding commission reports – lets you know which suppliers owe you money.

Tax preparation documents – we will make sure you have all the necessary sales and revenue documents for you to complete your Company Tax.
Additional Add-On Services
While the client trust account is at the core of what we do, we understand that you will also have a general business account which will record your business expenses.
As a total package, we can also provide book keeping services for your MYOB, Quickbooks or Xero accounts, file your BAS or even do your payroll.
We are here to provide a cost effective way of managing your business so that you can focus on your specialisations.
The technology available in the travel industry today allows you to work wherever in the world you could be, at whatever time of the day.
With TAS, our preferred GDS is Amadeus and we can help you transition if this is not your background. The hardest about learning a GDS is knowing what you want it to do, so if you are coming from Sabre or Travelport, you already know those questions - you just need the cheat sheet to translate the commands you know into the commands you need.
Everyone with TAS will use Tramada as their mid-office, and you will receive discounted access to Tramada Premier – the fully featured version.

Integrated credit card processing – charge a credit card from within a booking file, and have the credit card fee automatically calculated and the receipt automatically issued. So easy!
Cloud based – access from anywhere at any time
Operational efficiencies – such as multiple PNRs per booking, from multiple sources and multiple passengers per booking
Fully compliant with PCI DSS requirements for credit card security

You started your own travel business to sell travel, not to do accounting or marketing. TAS provides you with that crucial support that allows you to spend your time doing what you love – selling travel and serving your clients!

Your ability to deliver flawless travel and to operate an efficient, profitable business requires dedicated support professionals to keep your business running as it should. Whether it be systems or accounting support, or our inhouse fares helpdesk – we are here to help.

The TAS password protected intranet site contains detailed supplier information, commission levels, sales rep contact details, training courses, directories and other features to help you manage your business.
At the core of every agency is the ability to book great value airfares. Not only do we have access to a variety of private, nett fares, but you will also have an outstanding Ticketing Team there to help you with all your ticketing needs. Whether it be a complicated Round the World fare, a schedule change or a refund, the team is here to help.
TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
We have collaborated with training providers to curate training programs that will help build your business. Sales and leadership training or supplier webinars and hosted supplier presentations – they are all part of the way we help build your knowledge and relationships to help you grow your business.
Members who also become Virtuoso affiliates have another world of training opportunities, including Virtuoso Training Academy and being part of the largest travel conference each year in Las Vegas – Virtuoso Travel Week. An event like no other.
Other opportunities can be based on a written submission to the supplier, opening up opportunities for you to experience destinations and properties where you may not pursue any knowledge or experience.
Technology & Systems Training
You will most likely already know your way around the commonly used technology platforms in the travel industry. Inevitably though, TAS will use something that you aren’t familiar with, and for those times, we have the training to support you and get you up to the speed.
Suppliers recognise our Independent Contractors under the TAS banner, which means that a higher volume of sales collaborated as individual members who have on their own. This could mean that we achieve higher sales tiers and can deliver higher commissions with top partners. The result? You earn more profits.TAS can also provide members with access to special corporate and nett airfares to enable you to stay ahead of the competition and offer incredible airfare value to your clients. Forget about fighting with a consolidator for a decent share of airline commission – nett fares enable real value and real revenue opportunities.
