How to Pay

An invoice will be mailed to the organisation following approval by ABS of the microdata application. Once payment is received, then access is granted.

Staff and students of universities participating in the ABS/Universities Australia Agreement will not be invoiced. This is because Universities Australia has paid for access on behalf of participating universities.
