PPSR Registrations via CreditorWatch

  • Updated


To complete your PPSR Registration through your CreditorWatch portal, simply follow the steps below;


  1. Enter the ABN or ACN into the search bar.


  1. Please click on report actions on the right hand side underneath generate report. 


  1. This will prompt your template(s) to appear, select the desired template(s) and scroll to the bottom of the screen to finalise.


  1. Select whether you are registering an individual or an organisation.



There are a few PPSR rules to keep in mind when selecting an Organisation Number Type:


Individuals (including Sole Traders)

  • Given Names, Last Name and Date of Birth. You should obtain these details from a government issued document (i.e. Drivers Licence or Passport)
  • ABN’s for sole traders will not be sufficient as the identifier.


Company / Organisation

  • Australian Company Number (ACN)
  • Using the ABN as the identifier to register a company can make the registration invalid.
  • If present, use an ACN over an ABN


Partnerships, Trusts

  • Partnerships and trusts are registered via Australian Business Number (ABN).
  • When registering a Trust, you can also add the Trustee details to the registration (i.e. if the Trustee is a Pty Ltd company, then register the ACN, IN ADDITION to the ABN).


Australian Registered Body / Australian Registered Scheme

  • Whilst not common, you may come across entities that have an ARSN or ARBN in addition to the ABN.
  • In these cases you should register against the ABN and the relevant ARSN or ARBN.


  1. Choose the organisation identifier type from the dropdown and copy and paste the associated number into the organisation number field.


  1. Once this is done you can click register to finalise.
