Key steps for authorised lodgers

  1. Get authorised. You must be authorised to transact on behalf of a business name holder. This is a private arrangement between you and the business name holder – we are not involved.

  2. Sign up to create an ASIC Connect account.  Each individual who is authorised to transact with us for a business name holder must create a personal ASIC Connect account.

  3. Get ASIC keys for business names. The ASIC key is a unique number associated with each business name.

  4. Link business names to each authorised lodger's ASIC Connect account.
