What do I need to bring to an auction to register to bid?

A drivers licence is best. If you do not hold one you need a card or document issued by a government or financial institution that shows your name and address. For example a passport or medicare card along with a utility bill or statutory declaration stating your address.

What documentation do I need to bid on behalf of another person?

If you are bidding for another person, you must provide an authority to act on their behalf even if they are present at the auction. You will also need proof of their identity.

What documentation do I need to bid on behalf of a company, superfund or trust?

If you are bidding on behalf of a company, superfund or trust, a letter of authority must be provided. It must contain full details of the company including the registered address and ABN as the company’s proof of identity. This authority is still required even if you are the sole director of the company.
