If you need some help, we’ve listed the most common areas people ask about.

You must use a personal email address to create an individual account in QRO Online.

Do not use generic or shared email addresses (e.g. accounts@company.mail).

Each account must be individually verified, so using a shared account means that personal information will be accessible to anyone who logs in using the shared email address.

Once you have created your account, you must verify your identity before you’ll be able to link to other accounts or view and pay your liability.

Land tax options

If you personally own land in Queensland, you will be able to access information about your land holdings (once you’ve verified your account). This doesn’t mean you owe land tax, it just means we have identified land held in your name.

You will then be able to register for other state revenue streams from the Home screen.


Royalty options

If you personally hold an interest (or share) in a mining or petroleum resource authority and you are the registered royalty client, you will be able to access information about your royalty operation and resource authorities.

You will then be able to register for other state revenue streams from the Home screen.



Once you have permission to manage a company or trust account, you can assign access to other users (e.g. the company accountant).

These users cannot see your personal information (e.g. details of land that you own in your name).

To ensure you assign access correctly, select View accounts on the Home screen, select the entity and then select Assign permission from the left menu.
