How to register an organisation

To access an available service on behalf of an organisation, you must register your organisation in PRODA.

Before you can register an organisation in PRODA, you must make sure that:

  • you’ve registered an individual PRODA account
  • you’re an Associate or Authorised contact for the organisation on the Australian Business Register (ABR)
  • your PRODA individual account name is an identical match as recorded on the ABR.

To register an organisation in PRODA, the organisation must have an active Australian Business Number (ABN).

Check with the service provider if you need to register an organisation in PRODA to access their service. Contact the ABR if you need to update the information recorded on the ABR.

Step 1 – Register the organisation

To register an organisation in PRODA, log in to your individual PRODA account. Select the Organisations tab, then select the Register New Organisation.

Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to enter the following:

  • name of the organisation
  • ABN of the organisation
  • organisation contact email address.

Your individual PRODA account name must exactly match the Associate or Authorised contact for the organisation on the ABR. If they don’t match, you won’t be able to proceed to the next step.

Step 2 – Answer ownership questions

You’ll need to answer 3 proof of ownership questions about the organisation. The questions are from non-publicly available information about the organisation on the ABR.

Your answers to the 3 questions must exactly match the information on the ABR. If they don’t match, you won’t be able to proceed to the next step.

You should contact the ABR if either:

  • you need assistance with your answers
  • you need to update the information recorded on the ABR.

Visit the ABR website if you need to contact the ABR for more information and assistance.

Step 3 – Verify the organisation email

We’ll send an activation code to your organisation email address. To register the organisation, enter the code in the Email code field to verify your email address.  

Once we verify the email address, we’ll confirm you’ve registered the organisation in PRODA by email. It will include the Registration Authority (RA) number which is unique to the organisation. You can give this to the PRODA Helpdesk if you need support.

You’re good to go!

If you need assistance with linking to a service, you’ll need to contact that service provider for support.
