You will be required to supply an ABN, contact information and a description of your business. Businesses also need to agree to the State Heritage Office’s Terms and Conditions which will appear in a pop-up box as you work through the registration process.
When filling out the registration form:
• Some fields require information including business name, ABN, contact details and billing category. Do not put spaces in the telephone number, use dot points in the description area and avoid punctuation in the principal field.
• The description field allows for between 500 and 10,000 characters including punctuation and spaces. The first 500 characters will appear on screen with the user having the ability to click on the description box to view the remaining information. The description box is your opportunity to highlight the services you provide, projects you have worked on, and any awards or citations you have received. If you specialise in certain disciplines or areas, these should be noted in the description box such as adaptive reuse or maritime projects.
• If you are required to be registered or licensed, please provide your registration number next to your name in the principal section. You should also note your academic qualifications. Please ensure that you detail any professional memberships or associations in the membership section.
• You can choose multiple options in the specialisation, services, trades and regional area categories. Tradespeople should confine their listing to categories under Trade Services.
• The directory relies on specialists providing a fair, accurate and current description of their skills, qualifications and expertise in cultural heritage matters. Failure to adhere to this will result in your listing being removed from inContact.
• Businesses are also encouraged to read Guide to engaging a specialist. This guide provides handy information for owners and others looking to engage a heritage specialist, and may provide further tips on what information you could consider including in your listing.
