Te whakaae ki tangata kē kia noho hei kaiwhakarite mō ō pānga Let someone act on your behalf


If a nominated person will act for your own personal account, you must set them up.

A nominated person acting for a non-individual account must be set up by:

  • a company director
  • trustee or estate administrator
  • executive 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.

Log in to myIR

Go to Manage associated accounts/parties

You will find this be selecting the More button beside I want to.

Select Add a nominated person

Fill out the required details and select the account types you want to be managed.

You will be able to review your details before submitting.

What happens next

Some nominated person applications take time to process. You will be able to track the progress on your Submitted tab in myIR.

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’.

My responsibilities

If you nominate someone to act on your behalf, it does not change your obligations. You will still be responsible for filing returns and making payments.

You need to let us know if you want to end a nominated person’s authority.
