Create a myIR account
Manage your tax and entitlements online with myIR secure online services. Creating a myIR account is a simple three step process:
- Confirm which myIR account is right for you.
- Create your myIR account.
- Activate your myIR account.
Create a personal myIR account using your IRD number
You cannot create a myIR account for another person, even if that person nominates you to act on their behalf or you are their spouse or partner.
A nominated person or spouse/partner cannot access or maintain a myIR account on someone else's behalf.
Create a myIR account for your business, using your business's IRD number
Employees are not eligible to create a myIR account on behalf of their employer. The employer can create an account and then delegate authority to complete regular tasks.
