Adding a representative on myQBCC

Please note: If you would like a third party to submit this information on your behalf, you will need to ensure they have been added as a nominated representative and assigned the appropriate permissions in myQBCC.

See myQBCC - adding other users to your account for more information.

Here is a quick overview of the online steps.

Annual reporting submission process

Remember, these important rules still apply:

  • don’t go over your maximum revenue amount by more than 10% without informing the QBCC
  • keep your ratio of current assets to current liabilities to at least 1:1
  • ensure you continue paying your subcontractors and suppliers.

What is my ‘most recent reporting year’?

You are required to provide financial information for your most recent reporting year. For most licensees, your most recent reporting year end would be 30 June, in line with the financial year.

Not using your contractor licence? 

If you have a QBCC contractor licence and don’t contract for building work, you may want to consider changing your licence type to nominee supervisor.

While a nominee supervisor licence doesn’t allow you to personally perform building work, it does allow you to supervise on behalf of other QBCC licensed contractors of the same licence class or be the nominee for a company, just as your contractor licence does. 

Being the holder of a nominee supervisor licence also means you don’t have to meet minimum financial requirements (MFR) or lodge annual financial reporting.

Currently, as the holder of a contractor licence, you are required to:

  • lodge your annual financial information even if you didn’t earn any revenue during the financial year
  • have the required level of net tangible assets (NTA) to cover the maximum revenue (MR) limit for your licence category. 

For details on how to change your licence type visit the Renew, update or surrender your licence page. There are fees for changing your licence type.

Did you know you have an increased annual turnover cap as an SC2 licensee?

The new laws have given SC2 licensees the opportunity to have an increased annual turnover of up to $800,000.

SC2 licensees need to have $46,000 in working capital. Note that SC licensees cannot rely on a deed of covenant and assurance (only licensees in categories 1 – 7 may rely on a deed of covenant and assurance to meet the MFR).  

Do you have both an individual and company contractor licence?

You need to submit annual financial information for both the individual contractor and the company contractor licence. This is the case even if your individual turnover is $nil.

This can be done online via the myQBCC portal.
