How do I register a company in the RIW System?

What information does a company need to register in the RIW System?

  • Company Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • Company registered address
  • Estimate of the number of RIW cardholders to be registered to the company. 

Step 1: Company Registration

Go to and click on Company Registration.


Step 2 - Populate Company Registration Form 

Enter a valid ABN in the company ABN field and click lookup. You can find all valid ABNs on the website.


Note: If the company is already registered in the RIW database (identified by the ABN provided on the form), a message will be displayed informing the applicant to contact the RIW Service Desk on 1300 101 682 for more assistance.



The Registered Company Name and Trading As field will be automatically populated from the lookup search. If not, then the ABN is not valid. Correct the ABN and click Lookup again.


Note: you can change the Trading As field if you would like another name to be displayed in the RIW System.


Select the Payment Tier based on the estimate of the number of RIW cardholders the company will manage in the RIW System.

Step 3 - Provide Company Details

Enter company address and primary contact details as per the example below, noting that all items with a red asterisk (*) are compulsory.


Step 4 - Terms and Conditions

Tick the box to agree to Terms and Conditions, and complete the CAPTCHA by ticking the I am not a robot tick box (and eventually selecting pictures if required to do so).

Click on the Send button.

If successful, you will see the below message.



If you are not successful, the most common problem is that the ABN selected already exists in the RIW System. Please contact the RIW Service Desk on 1300 101 682 or for guidance.

Step 5: 

Once the application has been approved (this may take up to three business days), an email containing a username and a link to login to the system and set a password will be sent to the designated Primary Contact. Complete the CAPTCHA (I’m not a robot), and click Save


Step 6 - Accepting the System Access Rules 

Read through the System Access Rules statement, and click the tick box and the Agree button to confirm acceptance. 



Step 7 - Access to the RIW System is now granted
