Changes to the Boyce Portal

16 November 2020

We’ve been hard at work making some changes to the Boyce portal to make it easier to use and more secure for you. These changes will apply from 16 November 2020.

Easier to use – you no longer require a Microsoft account, instead you will use a one-time password.

More secure – we have added multi factor authentication. This is an additional code or prompt generated by an app on your phone; just like the banks.

What is the Boyce Portal?

The Boyce Portal has been developed to be a secure and efficient way for you and your accountant to share information, with functionality expanding regularly. You should consider using the Boyce Portal if:

  • You want to work on files together with your accountant, where you can both access and update the live document at the same time, without the need to download and upload versions.
  • You want to stop sending lots of emails with files to your accountant and streamline the document collection process.
  • You want access to documents to download when you need them, such as previous financial statements, tax returns and permanent documents.
  • You need to send or receive large documents from your accountant.
  • You need to send or receive sensitive information that cannot be sent by email for security reasons.
  • You need to share select information with third parties, such as the ATO.
  • You want to use a digital storage space that you and your accountant share.

Changes

When you sign in, we’ll send a code to your email instead of a password. View example here.

The first time you log in, you will be prompted to set up your multi factor authentication.

We recommend using Microsoft’s Authenticator app, as it will send you a push notification which you can accept, as opposed to having to enter another code.

View our multi factor authentication setup guide here.

We’ve made these changes to simplify the sign in process and ensure information is more secure than ever.

We would love to hear your feedback, please let us know through your accountant.
