Connect user account types

View larger version of the Connect user account types diagram (PDF, 71K).

In some instances not all contacts will be required—it is up to each customer to decide what works best for you.

Customers will have a single record and be uniquely identified by:

  • ABN/ACN—organisation/business
  • full name, DOB and address—individuals.

As a Connect user, you will be able to link yourself to multiple customers, either as an:

  • administrative user (if you have submitted a letter of authorisation)
  • general user, or
  • agent.

An agent can only be connected to a customer account when the administrative user of that customer account accepts the agent’s request to link to that customer account. Once an agent linkage is accepted and approved, that agent can submit any application on behalf of the customer. When commencing the application process the agent will be asked to choose the customer that they are acting on behalf of. Agents can also complete permit returns and pay annual fees on behalf of customers.
