Grant others access to your GST account in myIR
Find out how to grant others access to your GST account in myIR.
What's on this page
There are two ways you can grant others access to your GST account: third party and first party. You can learn about them below.
Third party access allows others to access your GST account when they log in to their own myIR account. A third party may be a bookkeeper or nominated person who acts on your behalf.
To grant third party access:
- Log in to myIR and go to the 'My GST' section.
- Go to 'Logon settings'. Under the 'Quick links' heading select 'Grant access to accounts' and follow the instructions.
For help setting up third party access go to our video, How to grant someone access to your GST account (third party).
First party access gives someone a new user ID and password to access your myIR account. You can choose this option if you have someone who works for you or acts on your behalf to help with your GST and other tax affairs.
To grant first party access:
- Log in to myIR. Under 'Tools' select 'Manage account access'.
- Follow the instructions to create a new user and grant them access to your myIR account.
- When this is done you need to take two additional steps to grant access to your GST account(s). Select the 'My GST' tab in myIR. Go to 'Logon settings'. Under the 'Quick links' heading choose 'Manage additional logons'.
- Under 'Logons without account access' select the user ID of the person you just set up and choose their access level.
People can be set up as either account administrator or account user depending on the level of access you (the account owner) want them to have.
For help setting up first party access go to our video, How to give someone access to your GST account (first party).
If you're a tax agent and have employees managing a client list for GST, complete steps one and two under 'First party access' above.
With their new login details your employees can:
- log in
- link and delink clients, and
- add them to their workspace.
Employees won't be able to access your agency's own GST account.
