Transfer a NEM registration
This page outlines the requirements for transferring a registration in the National Electricity Market (NEM).
Transferring a registration
Under National Electricity Rules clause 2.9A, a Registered Participant (transferor) can apply to AEMO to transfer its registration in a particular category to another person (transferee). The transferee must establish that it meets all the eligibility criteria for registration in that category
If there is no intermediary relationship involved, and if there is no material change to the way the underlying facilities are classified, the transferee and the transferor must each complete the forms and provide the additional documentation indicated below.
If this is not the case, the transfer may need to be treated as a new application for registration. Please contact AEMO to discuss your requirements in this situation.
The following documents are to be used when transferring a registration in the NEM.
Fees and charges
The transferee must pay a registration fee, and these are outlined on the Fees and charges page.
These documents need to be supplied by the transferee with the transfer form, or beforehand, as they support your application.
Recipient-created tax invoices (RCTI)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AEMO has adopted digital and remote ways of working to protect our people and critical operations. During this time, Transferees can sign and exchange electronically.
NEM settlements revisions
This deed is used when one entity wishes to take liability for the settlement revisions of another; for example, in the event of an acquisition.
Guide to market systems
The Guide to Market Systems – NEM Change of Ownership guide provides details regarding transfer of control of electricity assets registered with AEMO, as well as basic information on some key issues that may arise from corporate actions, such as a merger or acquisition.
Note that transition can have significant ramifications regarding network and logical secured access. In addition, many of AEMO’s NEM systems have defined cut-off times for particular transactions and reports.
