About D2A

Current version - D2A 5.3, released June 2014.

D2A or Direct to APRA, is a flexible, secure and user-friendly electronic data submission system. D2A enables regulated and registered financial entities to lodge their statutory returns with APRA.

Data can be manually entered or imported directly into D2A from the reporting institutions' own information systems. D2A submits returns by passing information in an encrypted form to APRA using a direct internet connection.

Note on version 5.3.1: Due to server issues APRA reverted back to version 5.3 of D2A. However if you previously downloaded version 5.3.1, it can still be used. You do not need to reinstall version 5.3.
