Online with ACC
New online capabilities at ACC give tax agents and advisors access their client information 24/7. Go to www.acc.co.nz, send back the registration form and you can start.
You can access and update your clients' details, including classification units, full-time/part-time status and earnings. You can also apply for ACC CoverPlus Extra and view transactions and upcoming payments, all online.
Check out current and historical transactions, eligibility for discounts, payments, non-payments and much more, all on behalf of your clients. To register go to www.acc.co.nz/online, click: Agents and Advisors, then Register for ACC Online Services. Once you have completed the self-registration, please provide 10 client authorities by using the ACC1766 Giving Access to your ACC Levy Information form.
Alternatively, email your company's engagement letter or annual questionnaire. Your letter needs to mention ACC as an organisation you hold authority to link to. For more information or a sample paragraph for your letter, please email BRMmail@acc.co.nz.
ACC will send you a confirmation email, and then you can log on and begin. Remember to get your client's permission before you add their details to your online account, and keep this on file in case of an audit.
For more information, ph: 0800 222 991 or to arrange a visit from your local ACC Business Relationship Manager. Email: BRMmail@acc.co.nz.
