All Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) Scheme services are progressively moving from Client Portal to Online Services. This means that over time there will be one location for:

  • scheme enrolment
  • registering new projects
  • varying existing projects
  • reporting and crediting for existing projects
  • notifying us of events impacting your project
  • managing your project, including user permissions.

We have upgraded our systems to make participation easy and application processing faster. Read more about improving ACCU Scheme services

We’ll continue to update this page as new capabilities are rolled out in Online Services.

Drafts will be lost

Draft forms in legacy Client Portal can’t be transferred and will be lost once the method moves to Online Services. Our schedule below shows which methods will be affected and at what time.

Variation forms

All forms to vary a project across all methods will move to Online Services in August 2024. 

During the transition, projects that have been registered in Online Services will need to use this same platform to submit a variation application. Please contact us if you need to use the new variation forms before their release in August 2024.
