Request an ACC number

This form is for self-employed and non-PAYE shareholder-employees wanting to apply for ACC CoverPlus Extra (CPX), who are new to business, i.e. in their first year of trading, but haven’t yet had an ACC number issued for levy invoicing.

Who is this form not for?

  1. You have had ACC Number issued but can’t remember it, or you are an employer. Please call us on 0800 222 776 to confirm your number. 
  2. 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. 

What do I do next?

You’ll receive a confirmation that the ACC number and account has been created within 3-5 business days. Once this confirmation is received:

  1. If you’re the account holder, you can register for a MyACC for Business account using your IRD number, view your new ACC number and apply for CPX.
  2. If you’re an agent, you can link to your customer’s account in MyACC for Business using your client’s IRD number, view their new ACC Number and apply for CPX on behalf.
  3. If you’re an advisor, you can complete an ACC1766 using your client’s IRD number. Once this is processed, you can view their new ACC number and apply for CPX on behalf in MyACC for Business.
