How to access DAERA online services via Government Gateway

To access DAERA online services via Government Gateway you will require your DAERA Access Key and DAERA Customer ID to complete this process in one visit.

DAERA Access Key letter

Click the button below or telephone the DAERA online services team on 028 9442 6699 (Monday to Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm) to request your DAERA Access Key by post (please allow two working days for delivery).

Customer ID/Agent ID

This is a six digit number beginning with a 1 or 2, or with an 8 if you are registering as an agent (it is not your Business ID, which begins with a 6). If you do not have your DAERA Customer ID or Agent ID, you can request this information by telephoning the DAERA online services team on 028 9442 6699 (Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.00pm).

A Government Gateway ID

A Government Gateway ID is a unique 12 digit number generated on application. The application requires your name, email address and a password.  This number will be unique to you and can be used for other Government services such as VAT online.

If you already use a Government Gateway ID for a different Government service you can use it to login to DAERA online services, but you will be asked for your DAERA Access key and Customer ID the first time you login.

Accessing DAERA online services for the first time

To sign into your DAERA online services account for the first time, have your DAERA Access key and Customer ID/Agent ID ready.

  • apply for your Individual or Agent Government Gateway ID (hyperlink to step 2 of registration process) (or use an existing Government Gateway ID). Take a note of your new Government Gateway ID and password. Keep it safe and secret.
  • enter your Customer ID/Agent ID and DAERA access key
  • click on ‘ Go to online services homepage’

If successful you will see your business details displayed at the top of the screen and the list of available DAERA online services.

Once successfully enrolled, you will not be asked to enter your DAERA Access Key or Customer ID, for subsequent logins.
