A secure and trusted service
This site was launched in July 2017 and is regularly being updated as and when new service providers (from Scottish public sector organisations) choose to deliver online services.
Bisaccount.scot is designed to work nationwide - giving public sector organisations across Scotland a shared, secure method of verifying who businesses are online. You can search for participating public services in your local area and nationwide.
When you first register for a bisaccount, you will be asked to create a unique username and you will be provided with a one-time use password to sign in for the first time. When you sign in using these details for the first time, you'll then be able to create your own secure password for future access. You can then use this single set of sign in details to access a growing number of public sector services across Scotland.
In time, you will be able to use bisaccount to update your official business records, pay business rates and request permits so it's important that the organisations, whose service you access are able to confirm you are who you say you are.
When you sign up to use a new service on bisaccount, the data fields to be shared with the service provider are shown on screen before you sign up to the service. That way, you know exactly which details of your own data will be shared to access that service. This helps to ensure your account belongs to you and only you.
