Who needs a PPSR account?

You don’t need an account to do a PPSR search - but you may want to create one.

You can search the PPSR as a casual user without an account. If you are a regular searcher, you may find it helpful to create an account; it provides benefits such as flexible payment options and storing your account history.

What's the difference between an account and a secured party group (SPG)?

An account lets you manage all of your PPSR access and usage such as creating users, making registrations, and logging your search history. 

You can use your account to create a secured party group (or SPG). An SPG contains details of secured parties (the person who claims to have the interest registered on the PPSR). SPGs can contain one or more secured parties. 

Account holders can create multiple SPGs. Each SPG has a unique number so account holders can easily identify them and manage the registrations made using their details. 

The account holder and SPG are often the same person or from the same organisation, although they don't have to be. For example a lawyer could have a PPSR account they use to create registrations on behalf of their clients (whose details would be contained in different SPGs).
