There are 3 levels of access to a myIR account:

  1. Account owners - either individual customers who have registered for myIR using their own IRD number, or authorised persons for organisations registering for a myIR account, such as a company director. Owners have full access to the myIR account, including setting up account administrators and users through Manage account access.
  2. Account administrators - persons who have been set up through Manage account access by the account owner. Account administrators can also set up other administrators and users. They have the same access and functions as account owners, except they are not able to view reports for the account owner.
  3. Account users - persons who have been set up through Manage account access by the account owner or administrator. Account users only have access to the specific services that have been delegated to them by the account owner or administrator.

As an owner or administrator, you can update the levels of access to your myIR account anytime using Manage account access .
