Registering and logging in

Registering for the portal creates your individual portal user account. You only need to register once.

To register for the portal, go to the Registration page and click on one of the tiles describing the ways to register. How you choose to register will depend on who you are and what you want to do first on the portal but they all create an individual portal user account.

Enter your personal details. This includes your name, date of birth, and email address (this will be your username), and mobile number. Depending on how you have chosen to register, this might also include an industry funding security key, a licence or registration number, or entity type.

You will also need to read the ASIC Regulatory Portal: User Agreement, the Privacy Collection Notice for the ASIC Regulatory Portal, and make a declaration about using the portal.

Click ‘Register’.

We will then send you a confirmation email, which will prompt you to create a password.

For more information, see our user guide.

ASIC Regulatory Portal: How to register

View video in full screen

Check your email ‘trash’ or ‘junk’ folder first.

Go to the portal landing page and click the ‘Log in’ button. On the Log in page, in the left-hand panel click the ‘Already registered, but didn't receive your confirmation email?’ link.

This will take you to a screen where you can enter your email and we will resend the confirmation.

In most cases, yes. If you have either a Corporate key or an ASIC key you can still register. On the registration page, select either the 'I want to link to a licence or registration I hold' or the 'I want to act on behalf of a registered company or body' tile. Complete the registration process.

Log in to the portal (see How do I log in?) and select the entity you wish to submit business activity metrics for. 

This will take you to the dashboard for that entity. Click Start a new transaction. This will take you to a list of transactions. Select Submit industry funding business activity metrics. This will take you to the landing page for the industry funding business activity metrics form or transactions. Read this information. Click Start transaction.

If you don’t have either a Corporate key or an ASIC key, you will need to request another letter – Contact us.

Only an authorised person, for example an officeholder (or equivalent), or holder of a licence or registration, can perform initial entity registration in the portal. Once the authorised person has registered they can then invite a trusted representative such as a company employee, a compliance officer, a registered agent, or a service provider to connect to their entity and assign them the required user access to view confidential information and perform regulatory tasks on behalf of the entity.

Once invited, the trusted representative will receive an invitation to the portal for the relevant entity and will be able to perform the required duties on behalf of the entity which they represent, including for example, the submission of industry funding business activity metrics.

The authorised person will only ever have to register and assign access to the trusted representative once for their entity.

For more information, see our user guide.

To log in to the portal, you will first need to register a username and password – see How do I register?

If you have already registered for the portal, go to the portal homepage and click on the Login button. Enter your username and password.

My entities

An entity is a way of describing all the different ways through which business can be conducted – it could be an organisation structure like a company, a business, a partnership or a trust, or an individual (or ‘natural person’).

To connect to an entity, you must either have an existing role within or for that entity – for example, as a director or equivalent – or have a Senior administrator or Administrator Access level within the portal for that entity to invite you to connect. If you have an invitation to connect to an entity the invitation will include an invitation key.

Go to the Connect to an entity, licence or registration page and select on one of the tiles describing the ways to connect. You will need to enter some identifying information for the entity you wish to connect to – for example, Australian Company Number and confirm your capacity, or an industry funding security key or an invitation key. Once you have entered the required information and we have verified it, click Switch entity in the middle of the banner, which will take you to the Select entity page where you can view the entity and all other entities you have connected to.

Repeat the steps above to connect to multiple entities.

Depending on your circumstances, as a registered portal user you may be acting on behalf of a number of different entities. Each entity will have a ‘dashboard’ displaying that entity's information and its five most recent interactions with ASIC – it is where you can perform tasks for that entity. To switch entities means to switch from performing tasks for one entity and begin performing tasks for another – you will switch from one entity’s dashboard to another entity’s dashboard.

The portal shows you if you are acting on behalf of an entity or acting for yourself in the top middle of the banner.

To switch entities, click on Switch entity.

This will take you to the Switch entity page. Choose an entity from your list of connections, or you can add Another entity.

Forms and transactions

Click on Transactions in the top navigation bar. This will reveal a drop-down menu. Click on Start a new transaction. This will take you to a list of transactions you can select from.

Once you select a form or transaction, the portal will direct you to a landing page for that form or transaction. The landing page includes instructions and other information you need to complete it. To start entering the form or transaction information, click the Launch transaction button.

Once you launch a form or transaction, the portal will direct you to a transaction settings page. The transaction settings page asks if you want to restrict access to the transaction. To restrict access, click Yes – restrict access. This will take you to a set restrictions page, which allows you to select users who can access the transaction.

Once you have set the restrictions for a form or transaction, you can add or remove users later. To do this – click Transactions in the top navigation. Select View all transactions. Select a transaction from the list, click on Transaction settings – restrictions and then click Edit user restrictions.

Most forms or transactions consist of numerous sections and pages. Once you have entered all the required information in each section, reviewed this information and made any required declarations you will be presented with a Submit button. To submit the form click, Submit.

If any information on a form or transaction that ASIC has prefilled from its records includes errors, you must first correct the relevant record before proceeding with the form or transaction. This is because as part of all transactions, you must, among other things, declare that the information in the form or transaction is true and correct. Once you have completed the relevant form or process to amend the error on ASIC’s records, you can reload the form or transaction in the portal. It may take at least 24 hours to update a record once you have submitted the relevant form or transaction.

What you need to do to update your details will depend on what the details are. There should be information about this on the form or transaction.

More information on updating:

For information on how to update your portal user name or registration details, see How do I change my user name or my other registration details?

Yes. When you have a form or transaction open, Click Save & close. This will save it as a draft.

Draft forms or transactions are automatically removed from the portal after 6 months.

To view the forms or transactions you have submitted and their statuses, click on Transactions in the top navigation bar. This will reveal a drop-down menu.

Click on View all transactions. This will take you to a list of all forms or transactions for either yourself as an individual or if you are acting for an entity, for that entity. On this screen, if you have sufficient Access level, you will see the title and reference number of any form or transaction, when it was last accessed and who accessed it and its status – draft, submitted, lodged, completed, rejected etc.

Draft – A form or transaction that a user or users is working on, and is not yet submitted to ASIC.
Submitted – A form or transaction that a user has submitted to ASIC, which cannot be amended.
In progress – A submitted form or transaction that ASIC has received and is currently assessing.
Rejected – A submitted form or transaction that ASIC has received, assessed and rejected.
Completed – A form or transaction that ASIC has fully processed or finalised.
Withdrawn – A form or transaction that has been withdrawn.
Cancelled – A form or transaction that a user has created in error and ASIC has cancelled.

From the View all transactions page, click on an individual form or transaction. This will take you to a detailed view for that form or transaction. If the status of the form or transaction is Draft and you have the sufficient Access level, you can continue with the form or transaction using the Continue transaction button. This will relaunch your saved form or transaction.

From the View all transactions page, click on an individual form or transaction.

This will take you to a detailed view for that form or transaction. If the status of the transaction is Draft and you have the sufficient Access level you may also delete the form or transaction using the Delete button.

If you wish to withdraw a form or transaction, you need to contact ASIC to request we do this for you. If you are in contact with an ASIC officer about your form or transaction you can make your request to them. If not, you can Ask us a question online. In your request, you should include the reason(s) you are requesting the withdrawal (e.g. form or transaction is incomplete or incorrect) and your contact details. An ASIC staff member will then contact with you about your request. We assess each request individually.

If you wish to cancel a form or transaction, you need to contact ASIC to request we do this for you. If you are in contact with an ASIC officer about your form or transaction you can make your request to them. If not, you can Ask us a question online.

Click on Transactions in the top navigation bar. This will reveal a drop-down menu.

Click on View all transactions. This will take you to a list of all forms or transactions for either yourself as an individual or if you are acting for an entity, for that entity.

Click on a form or transaction that has a status other than Draft. This will take you to the transaction summary page. 

Click View original PDF. This will open the form or transaction in PDF format. Print or save a copy of the form or transaction. 

In some instances, you may encounter a message about embedded fonts not displaying correctly. Simply click ‘OK’ to continue. This will not affect your ability to open and read your PDF or any attachments.

ASIC’s antivirus scan software has detected a virus and has automatically deleted the file.

Resave the file in another format and try again.

When you submit a form or transaction, you will receive a confirmation screen (and in some case if you supplied an email address, a confirmation email). Both will contain your reference number for that submission.

The Recent transactions table on your dashboard lists the five forms or applications you have most recently submitted or edited. For a full list, click the View all transactions link beneath the recent list to go to the View all transactions page.

The portal user who launched the transactions has likely restricted access to the transaction. 

When you launch a transaction, you are given the option to restrict the transaction to specific users.  If you choose not to restrict access, all users connected to the entity will have access to the transaction. If you choose to restrict access, users you select to restrict access to will be unable to access the transaction.

Senior administrators have access to all transaction by default; you cannot change this.

Administration

Depending on who you are in relation to an entity will define what you can see or do on behalf of that entity – these are Access levels. We have four levels – Senior administrator, Administrator, Approver and Editor.

Senior administrator – can launch, edit and submit a transaction, invite other users to the entity and view other administrative details for an entity.

Administrator – can launch, edit and submit a transaction and invite other users to the entity.

Approver – in general, can launch, edit and submit a form or transaction, and view other administrative details for an entity.

Editor – in general, can launch and edit a form and transaction, but they cannot submit it.

Only a user with Senior administrator or Administrator Access level for an entity can invite other users to connect to that entity. See the full list of Access levels before assigning access to make sure you understand the access level you ascribe to the invitee.

To invite a user:

  • Make sure you are viewing the entity you want to invite the user to connect to.
  • Click on Administration in the top navigation bar.
  • Click on the Users tab.
  • Click on Invite new user to entity button.
  • Enter the invitee's details – name, email address etc. You will also need to declare that you understand the access you are giving the invitee.
  • Click Confirm.

This will send the invitee an email, including an invitation key that they can use to register or connect to the entity if they have an existing portal account.

Most changes (e.g. change of address) need to be lodged with us in a set timeframe. You will also need to pay some payments within a set timeframe. If you lodge or have an outstanding payment after this time, we may charge a late fee.

Penalties relate to industry funding obligations. Penalties may apply if someone has not submitted business activity metrics without a ‘reasonable excuse’. They are also applicable to late payment of industry funding invoices.

For more information, see our penalities page.

If you’ve accidently overpaid, or in some cases if we have rejected an application, you can request a refund.

How you request a refund will depend on how you made your initial payment. Generally, we'll provide a refund in the same way you made payment (e.g. if you paid using credit card, we'll refund the amount to the credit card).

For more information, see our refunds page.

Find out what information you need to provide for a missing payment search.

We do not have the power to waive annual review fees, document lodgement fees, or other fees the Australian Government levies. In some cases, we can waive late fees.

Messages, notifications and Official notices

Messages are correspondence between you (or your entity) and ASIC and vice versa about either a transaction (form or application) or an Official notice.

You can only send a message about a form or transaction that is in the ‘In-progress’ status – see What do the different statuses for a form or transaction mean?

Also, not all forms or transactions support messaging. To check if your form or transaction supports messaging, from your or your entity’s profile click on Transactions in top navigation bar and select View all transactions. This will take you to the View all transaction page. Click on a form or transaction. This will take you to the page for that individual form or transaction which includes a Summary tab and a Guide tab. If messages are available for a form or transaction, this page will also include a Messages tab.

The message function only becomes enabled for a form or transaction once it is submitted and has a status of  'In Progress'. From that point, it is active for the life of that form or transaction. This means that when the form or transaction status displays as 'Completed', you can no longer receive or send messages about it.

The message function is enabled for an Official notice until the notice status becomes 'Completed'.

You can access transaction messages from a number of places in the portal.

1. When you first log in to the portal, you are taken to on the Select entity page. In the Current connections table on that page, next to each entity you are connected to (which includes yourself) there is a Messages column with an envelope icon. If the envelope icon has a number next to it, this indicates that you have a message for that entity. If you click on the envelope it will take you to the message for that entity.

2. On your Dashboard, click on Messages in the top navigation bar. This will take you to the Messages page for you or the entity you are currently viewing. The Messages page will display messages about both transactions and Official notices.

The left-hand panel displays messages threads (that is, all messages about a single transaction or Notice); the right-hand panel displays the open thread – if you click on a message thread on the left-hand panel it will open in the right-hand panel.

3. You can also access messages about specific submitted transactions directly from the transaction page. From your Dashboard or the Vview all transactions page, click on a submitted transaction. This will open the transaction page, click on the Messages tab.

For more information, see our user guide.

To send a message, you can either go to the transaction page (a submitted transaction) that your message is about or to the Messages page. The example below describes how to create a message from a transaction:

  • When logged in, go to the Dashboard for the entity that has submitted the transaction about which you want to send a message. Click on the transaction in the list of Recent transactions.
  • This will take you to the individual transaction page. This page has three tabs – Summary, Guide and Messages.
  • Click on the Messages tab.
  • This will show all the current messages against this transaction. If you would like to start a thread or send a new message, click New message. Type in your message in the space provided.
  • To attach any supporting documentation, click Browse and select and attacment.
  • Click Send.

Access to a message thread is determined by the restrictions applied to a specific transaction or notice. To change who can access a message thread, you will need to edit the restrictions that have been applied to the notice or transaction.

For more information, see our user guide.

Official notices are official correspondence from ASIC to you (or your entity) – for example, a formal request for information.

Before you receive a notice in the portal you will first receive an email requesting that you agree to receive the notice in that way.

Click on Notices in the top navigation bar. This will take you to the Notices page for you or the entity you are currently viewing.

The Notices page includes an All tab and an Unread tab. The All tab includes a table of all notices you or the entity you are representing has received. The Unread tab includes a table of only those notices that are currently unread.

For more information, see our user guide.

If you want to, for example, ask a question in writing before you provide the formal response, you can send a message about the notice. See other FAQs on messages about notices.

Otherwise, to formally respond to a notice, from your Dashboard click on Notices in the top navigation bar. This will take you to the Notices page for you or the entity you are currently viewing.
Click on the notice you want to respond to in either the All or Unread tabs. This will open the individual Notice page.

Scroll down and Click on the Formally respond to this notice button. This will launch a Respond to an Official ASIC Notice transaction. Complete the transaction and click Submit.

Alternatively, you can click Save & close and return to complete the response later.

For more information, see our user guide.

Click on Notices in the top navigation bar. This will take you to the Notices page for you or the entity you are currently viewing.

The Notices page includes an All tab and an Unread tab. The All tab includes a table of all Notices you or the entity you are representing has received. The Unread tab includes a table of only those Notices that are currently unread.

In either of those tabs, the list of Notices includes a Status column.

Response required – The formal response has not yet been submitted to ASIC via the portal.

Response submitted – The formal response has been submitted to ASIC.

Completed – ASIC has determined that no further response is required for the notice.

Withdrawn by ASIC – ASIC has withdrawn the notice. This can only occur before the notice is ‘Completed’.

The envelope icon denotes messages. The exclamation mark icon denotes Notices.

In the top right-hand corner of any screen:

  • the number on the envelope icon indicates the total number of all unread messages for you and all the entities you represent.
  • the number on the exclamation mark icon indicates the total number of new Notices issued for you and all the entities you represent.

On the Switch entity page, in the Current connections table:

  • the number on the envelope icon in the Messages column indicates the total number of unread messages for the entity in that line.
  • the number on the exclamation icon in the Notices count column indicates the total number of new Notices issued for the entity in that line.

On the Messages page for an entity, the number shown for each of the message threads in the left-hand panel indicates the number of messages in that thread.

Access to a notice is restricted by default to Senior administrators and the recipient of the notice. Senior administrators and recipients of a notice can grant access to the notice to another portal user.

 

Other

At this stage, only SMSF auditors, Australian passport fund operators and notified foreign passport fund operators can change or update the details of their registration on the portal.

For all other licences and registrations, changing or editing any of the information you can view and access on the portal will not update ASIC’s registers. For example, if you want to change the registered address of your company, you will need to lodge a form to do so on the Companies portal.
