Parties are able to appoint a secretary to draft returns on their behalf. As an Agent of a Registered Political Party, log in to EDS, then go to your My Profile page by clicking your name in the top right corner. Click ‘Profile’ and then click ‘Secretaries’.
To nominate a secretary that is already a registered EDS user, type in the user name, first name or last name and select the secretary from the list of suggestions. Once you select a suggested user, the plus button will be enabled. Press the plus button to add them as your secretary.
If the secretary does not already have an EDS account, you will need to send them an invitation to register. Fill in their first name, last name and email address, and then click ‘Send invitation’.
EDS will send them an email containing an invitation link. When the nominated person clicks this link, their profile will be created and associated with yours.
If you have any existing representatives their name will be shown in this section. Click the ‘x’ next to their name to remove them as a secretary.
