Frequently Asked Questions
The Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) is a national online register that lets you register your interests in personal property. Searching and registering on the PPSR is critical risk protection if you are extending credit, selling on terms or leasing to a customer.
Personal property includes all forms of property other than land, buildings and fixtures, for example, machinery, cars, boats, crops, livestock and equipment.

PPSR in Visualisation has a unique AllPAAP Timeline feature which flags the secured party with the earliest AllPAAP, helping you to assess which secured party has priority. The AllPAAP Timeline uses original ASIC start dates rather than Register Commencement Time, where present, in order to help with this assessment.
