If your existing security was on a register but was not migrated you have 24 months to register it on PPSR.

Any new security interests must be registered on the PPS Register to have priority against other creditors.

You can also now register many security interests which were not previously registrable eg reservations of title or equipment leases.

If you are a business which supplies goods on credit or provides credit for the purchase of goods and you are not sure whether you have a security interest which can be registered look at our security interest analysis or contact Langes for further information.
