New business account for CPX

If you want to apply for CoverplusExtra (CPX) this is done through MyACC for Business. If you haven’t registered for MyACC for Business you’ll need an ACC number.

This form lets you request an ACC number and account. It is for self-employed and non-PAYE shareholder-employees wanting to apply for ACC CPX who are:

  • in their first year of trading, but haven’t yet had an ACC number issued for levy invoicing, or
  • trading through their company as a shareholder, but don’t have a personal ACC number.

This form does not apply if:

You’re new to self-employment but are not applying for CPX. Your ACC number will be created automatically once you’ve filed your first income tax return with Inland Revenue. 

You have had ACC number issued but can’t remember it, or you are an employer. Contact us to confirm your number.
