Before creating an account, you'll need to agree to ASIC's Electronic Lodgement Protocol.

You then select registered company auditor or director/officeholder of an authorised audit company

You must create a new account for each role you hold. For example, if you are a company officeholder and an auditor, you need to create two accounts.

If you are an officeholder for a few companies, you can manage them all from the same account.
