In brief, the Regulations provide that where the grantor is an individual, the identifiers are to be sourced from the documents in this order:
- the current driver's licence issued by an Australian state or territory
- proof of age card issued by an Australian state or territory
- Australian passport
- Australian visa
- passport from country grantor usually resides, or
- details on birth certificate.
If the grantor is an organisation, different rules apply depending on whether the grantor is a body corporate, a partnership, trustee of a trust, or a body politic.
See the PPS Regulations for more information on the grantor identification rules.
