If you affiliated as a Business User (BU) you would be put in a 'Pending' status. Every account must have at least one Business Access Administrator (BAA) on the account. They are responsible for approving and/or denying requests for access. If you stay in 'Pending' status as a BU for five days your request will expire. Please make sure you or one of the staff in your office is a BAA to handle these requests.
What is the difference between a BAA and BU role?
The Business Access Administrator (BAA) role is the business owner or designated person who is not only authorized to file payroll reports on behalf of the business, but can also approve and deny Business User access requests for that business. Every account must have a BAA to manage their users.
The Business User (BU) role is an individual approved by the BAA to file payroll reports on behalf of a business. If the preparer requests access as the BU, they only need enter the BIN or copy and paste it to submit their request for access. There must be a BAA on the account to approve or deny their request(s). They will not have access to OPRS until their affiliation has been approved.
