System availability

We have scheduled system maintenance windows that we use to maintain and upgrade our online services and business IT systems.

These maintenance windows may impact on our online services.

Note that during scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, we cannot guarantee the integrity of any information submitted or retrieved during these scheduled maintenance windows, and customers accessing our online services during this time do so at their own risk.

eServices Unavailable from 6am to 9pm Saturday, 2 August 2014 (AEST)

We wish to advise that eServices will be unavailable from 6am to 9pm Saturday 2 August 2014 (AEST) due to IP Australia internal system maintenance.

IP Australia will enable the Alternate Lodgement Service (ALS) for eServices during this outage. The ALS is a simplified version of eServices that allows electronic submissions during outages and downtime. You will be automatically redirected to the ALS if you attempt to access eServices during the outage period. You will need to agree to new Terms and Conditions to use the ALS and you will not be required to sign in.


Scheduled maintenance windows

Each week, the scheduled maintenance windows are:

  • Wednesday 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm (AEST)
  • Saturday 12.00 noon to 9.00 pm (AEST)
