How 1-Click Disclosure works

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this cost?

We charge a simple fixed fee of $300 (including GST). This is usually much cheaper than doing it yourself, because even if you do manage to gather everything on your own, it will still take your lawyer many hours of work to collate and prepare it by hand.

How long does it take?

We like to deliver on the same day, but will guarantee to have disclosure information and documents available within 3 working days from when you providing us with your authority and bank connections.

Is this too good to be true?

No. But we’ll take that as a compliment.

What can you provide?

We provide 3 years of income tax returns and assessments, superannuation accounts and reported balances, 12 months of bank statements and details and value estimates for real estate and vehicles. In other words, the key disclosure documents required for most people, and the ones that are usually the hardest to get.

What about business information?

We can provide tax returns, Business Activity Statements, bank statements, ATO account balance, an ABN search, and a company director and shareholders search for each company. We charge $200 per entity or $100 per sole trader, and - like everything else - it appears on your dashboard in hours. Perfect if you have a small business.

Get you get information for the other side?

Yes - with their consent of course. 1-Click Disclosure is twice as good when both sides use it. Bear in mind that 1-Click Disclosure is designed to enable people to willingly meet their disclosure obligations; it is delivered as a direct engagement with the client, with their full authority and consent. It can’t get private information on the other side without their consent. We created this as something for clients to use by choice - not as a forensic tool to unearth hidden assets from those not doing the right thing.

How and when do I pay?

If you are working with a lawyer and they refer you, they can take care of everything as a disbursement for your matter. If you are not working with a lawyer, we'll just send you an invoice when we deliver.

How do I request disclosure?

If you're working with a lawyer, just tell them that you'd like to use 1-Click Disclosure and they can make the request. If you're not working with a lawyer, you can request disclosure directly here.

Can I update the information at a later point in time?

Yes. Not only can you add and update items yourself as needed, but we’ll soon be launching the ability to refresh balances and documents automatically with a single click, as many times as you need to.

Is this secure?

Absolutely. Our bank statement technology is built on Illion’s BankStatements platform, which is used by thousands of lenders and brokers. Data is protected with bank level 256-bit encryption, secured by 2048-bit keys and only provided to Adieu. We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for data storage and identity and access management, on servers located in Australia. AWS complies with ISO 27018, a code of practice that focuses on protection of personal data in the cloud.

Where is data stored?

Our data storage is exclusively provided via servers located within Australia and is not disclosed to overseas recipients.

What about the my privacy?

1-Click Disclosure complies with the Australian Privacy Principles in how we collect, use and disclose personal information. The APPs are the cornerstone of the privacy protection framework in the Privacy Act 1988. We only disclose information to the you and - with your written authorisation - your lawyer, for the purpose of providing an exceptional experience in meeting your disclosure obligations. We never share, sell or use a your information in any other way that would benefit us and not you.

How long do you retain documents for?

We only retain documents for the life of the matter, in order to provide our service. At the conclusion of the matter, we permanently destroy any documents we hold, in compliance with APESB standards for public accounting practices for non-complex, compilation services.
