What is an RTA ID and where can I find mine?
Only joint lessors and organisations are assigned an RTA ID, which is a unique customer number used for transacting with the RTA and accessing RTA Web Services as an organisation or joint lessor. The RTA will have sent your RTA ID number to your organisation's email address registered with the RTA. You should keep this number secure.
