Transfer your registrations

This page will provide you with information about how you can transfer one or more of your PPSR registrations to another secured party.

On this page

The PPSR gives you the ability to easily transfer your registrations to another secured party. You may need to do this if you’ve sold or assigned your security interest to another secured party, for example if you have:

  • on-sold your secured debts to a collection agency
  • sold your business to another secured party resulting in the business identifier (such as ABN, ACN, etc) changing.

There are two ways you can transfer PPSR registrations:

  • Using your SPG details – this is the best way if you are transferring all or a large number of your registrations
  • Using the registration details – this is the best way if you are transferring a single registration.

There’s no fee for transferring registrations.

Who can transfer a registration ?

Anyone can transfer a registration if they have the SPG number and access code or are the account user who created the registration. However, the number of registrations you're able to transfer at a time depends on your account user permissions:

  • Default users can only transfer individual registrations using the registration details.
  • Account administrators can also transfer all or some of a secured party group's registrations using the SPG details.

If you don't have sufficient permissions or if your organisation has customised user groups, talk to your account administrator.

What you need to transfer a registration

If you don't already have one, you will need to create a free PPSR account. If you have forgotten your username or password, see Your PPSR account password and secret questions for more information.
