    By using online services you accept these terms of use. We may change these terms of use at any time without notice.

     

    Registering for online services

    To use MyACC for Business or Provider services you need to register with a RealMe login.

    About RealMe

    If you believe the security of your password has been compromised, or you become aware of any unauthorised use of your username or password, you must

    • change your password immediately, and
    • call our Business Customer Centre
    • call the RealMe helpdesk if it's about a RealMe login.

    You're responsible for ensuring that your own computer is secure. This includes taking all reasonable steps to:

    • prevent someone misusing or getting unauthorised access to your computer system or to our services online
    • ensure your computer system and data are free of computer viruses and all other forms of corruption.

    We will:

    • provide security to protect our website, online services and your information, and
    • collect data to help us identify suspicious activity.

    Acting on behalf in MyACC for Business

    When you're using MyACC for Business either representing an Agent or Advisor organisation or with delegated access, you’re saying that you’re authorised to do so by the levy payer for whom you're using the service.

    Agent or Advisor organisation users

    An Agent or Advisor organisation can apply for access to MyACC for Business which provides access to levy payer information.

    As an agent or advisor you must:

    • accept that your organisation is bound by these terms of use;
    • ensure that all users accessing online services on behalf of your organisation have the authority to do so;
    • accept responsibility for any actions undertaken using online services by all users connected to your account;
    • have written authority to act on behalf of any levy payer  linked to your portfolio; and
    • ensure that access is immediately revoked for any staff that leave your organisation.

    Administrator access

    At registration, you must nominate an administrator.

    The administrator can set up user accounts for other members of your organisation. These members need to access online services using their own RealMe login before they can activate their user account.

    Advisor administrators can:

    • create and manage portfolios
    • manage access for other users from their organisation.

    Agent organisation administrators can also:

    • create and manage portfolios
    • manage access for other users from their organisation
    • link clients to the organisation’s portfolio
    • de-link clients from the organisation’s portfolio

    If you are self-linking to your levy payer clients, explicit authorisation to act on their behalf must have been provided through your engagement with them. We may ask for evidence of this at any time. If evidence cannot be provided or the levy payer reports you have accessed their information without their authorisation, your organisation’s account may be suspended.

    Provider services - Viewing cover or claim information

    Every effort has been made to ensure that the information is accurate. If any information about your cover or claim is incorrect or incomplete please contact us and, if appropriate, we'll correct the information
