A new version of D2A (version 5.2) was released on 22nd February 2013, which permits institutions to submit data and view previous submissions using an AUSkey.
All users of D2A must now upgrade to version 5.2 or later of D2A to ensure you can submit, view and retrieve data via D2A.
If you are using Version 5.0 or 5.1 of D2A, you must follow the upgrade process. For more information refer to page 16 of the D2A Help Guide.
For D2A specific AUSkey information, refer to AUSkey and D2A: Frequently asked questions for Entities.
For general information, or to register for an AUSkey, visit the Australian Business Register AUSkey web site.
Before an entity can begin submitting data with AUSkey, they are required to acknowledge to APRA that they are responsible for the use and administration of AUSkey. Refer to the AUSkey acknowledgement process for details.
Please note, under the new Superannuation Reporting Standards, there are some D2A returns now required to be completed at the RSE Licensee level as well as returns at the RSE level. Previously, agent authorisations were recorded at the RSE (fund) level only. An additional authorisation is required where RSE Licensees permit an agent to submit returns at the RSE Licensee level on their behalf.

D2A 5.2.1, released February 2013.
D2A or Direct to APRA, is a flexible, secure and user-friendly electronic data submission system. D2A was introduced in 2001 and has replaced all industry-specific legacy systems. D2A enables regulated and registered financial entities to lodge their statutory returns with APRA.
Data can be manually entered or imported directly into D2A from the reporting institutions' own information systems. D2A submits returns by passing information in an encrypted form to APRA using a direct internet connection.
