Who can access Receive a Deposit? 

Access to Receive a Deposit can be provided to sales agents who collect property sale deposits for auctions and private sales.  

Your NAB Connect Administrator will need to add the sales agent as a General User in NAB Connect, then assign them to the Receive a Deposit service. 

The sales agent will not require access to any Trust accounts or additional services in NAB Connect. If a sales agent no longer requires access or is no longer employed by your agency), you should remove or revoke their access as this will not occur automatically.
