Password Tips for RedCrest users

RedCrest passwords must be over 8 characters long and contain a mix of:

  • Upper case (A, B, C, D, E ...)
  • Lower case (a, b, c, d, e ...)
  • Number (1, 2, 3, 4, ...)
  • Non alpha-numeric (!, @, #, $ ...)

Hint: A passphrase is easier to remember than a random grouping of letters and characters, e.g. Myp@ssw0rdisagood1

Email Verification and Notifications

You should receive your verification/confirmation email shortly after registering. You will need to verify your account via that email. Once you verify your account you will receive another email confirming your access is authorised.

If you have not received the confirmation email, please check your spam or junk folder before contacting the  erqperfg@fhcpbheg.ivp.tbi.nhua.vog.civ.truocpus@tsercder  . 

You can add alternative email addresses to your account profile. This means the alternate email address will receive a copy of each eFile Submitted, Rejected and Accepted email.

An alternative is to set an email rule on your inbox to copy any notifications to other relevant people.


Your RedCrest username is typically the email address you registered with. Your username is case-sensitive.
