Person/entity PINs

To make submissions on the Online Services Portal you will need either a company/entity PIN or a director/person PIN.

Note: If you are logged in to the Online Services Portal as a Corporate Service Provider, you will not need to use PINs to make submissions.

Requesting & changing PINs

If you have lost or do not have a PIN, you can request one using the Online Services Portal. New entity PINs are sent to the registered office address, new person PINs are sent to the individual's residential address.

PINs can also be changed to a more memorable number.
