If you want someone to act on your behalf for your own personal account, you must set them up as a nominated person.
If you want someone to act on behalf of your company, trust, estate, partnership or other non individual account, they can only be nominated by a:
- company director
- trustee or estate administrator
- executive office holder
- partner of a partnership.
Gather your information
You will need:
- a myIR account
- the name, IRD number and contact information for the person you're nominating.
After logging in to myIR, go to the 'I want to...' tab
Scroll to 'Access management' and select 'Add a nominated person'
Fill out the required details and select the account types you want to be managed.

What happens next
Some nominated person applications take time to process. You will be able to track the progress of this submission from the 'I want to...' tab, select 'Search submissions'.
We will email to let you know when your nominated person claims access to your account.
To remove access for your nominated person, edit your relationships in ‘Manage associated accounts/parties’.
If you nominate someone to act on your behalf, it does not change your obligations. You still need to file returns and make payments on time.
You need to let us know if you no longer want someone to be your nominated person, otherwise they'll still have access to your information.
