A person granted access to another person's account is called a 'Nominated Representative'. You can nominate as many people as you want to have access to your account to complete different actions on your behalf. This short video shows you how to add a nominated representative to your myQBCC account.

Currently, this includes the following:

  • employee
  • accountant
  • authorised person
