From Monday, 13 November 2017, company and business names commenced being added to the database.
They can be searched using the (second) Search by 'surname, firstname' field. Simply include part of the name in that field and select Search. Click on the image below to enlarge it.
Four separate stand-alone PC programs have now been written for the above states that can be run at say, 7.00 am in the morning to check whether a particular person is due to appear in any of those state courts that same day.
The daily ACCR database records are not added to the database until later that morning, but using these programs allows you to know where someone will be, not has been.
This is particularly useful for process servers with difficult serve or investigators looking for missing persons.
The name search options for NSW, VIC & SA daily court lists are excellent and can be found at:
WA was added as a program as there are two main WA daily court list sites. Whilst one purports to show all courts, names were regularly found on the second list that were not included on the first.
The programs are free to anyone with an active account on the ACCR database of one month or longer. Just send an email using your registered email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Need to check if someone will be appearing before one of the 25 x District/Supreme or 37 x Magistrate Courts in Queensland that day?
Searching them all individually (anytime after 6.45 am Monday to Friday) is VERY time consuming. However, a new stand-alone PC program is available that will check all 62 courts to see whether a name is on those lists.
It is available free of charge to anyone that has an active 1 x month or longer paid account.
To obtain the program, send an email to: email@example.com
Similar programs for TAS & NT will also be available soon.
The name search options for NSW, VIC, SA & WA courts are excellent and can be found at:
As of 27 September 2017, WA records being added to the database for all courts will include full details of the offences.
Full offences are now available in TAS, SA, WA & NT records.
I wonder when QLD, NSW, ACT & VIC will (finally) catch up?
Alerts allow you to receive an email whenever a new record for a particular name/s are added to the database.
This is particularly useful when you need to keep a regular check on certain people.
To access Alerts, just select the dropdown option on your account name in the top menu.
Alerts work for registered users, even if you haven't upgraded to paid access. However, registered accounts that haven't upgraded to paid access are automatically deleted after 2 weeks. Paid accounts that have expired are also automatically deleted after 3 months. After this time, you will need to re-register.
A list of links for court transcript services for all Australian States has been added to the website under - more > additional resources > court transcripts

Old PDF records for NSW Courts from December 2012 through to August 2014 have been converted and are now searchable in the online database. Somewhat surprisingly, some of these records contain details of the offences for which that person was before the courts.
If you've previously conducted NSW searches and not checked the PDFs, it might be worthwhile conducting those searches again.
This now completes the conversion of ALL the old PDFs to online records.
The searchable PDFs will be retained in case a screenshot is required of how the record appeared on the court website on that day.
Court records for all Victorian courts from August 2013 to October 2014 have been converted from PDF and are now available in the online ACCR Database Search.
We are now automatically including data match-ups with the Qld Magistrates Court Calendars on specific matter types. 2017 data has now been updated and we are currently working on also including 2016 and 2015 data matches.
The data is taken directly from the published Qld Magistrates Court Calendars, which can be accessed at this link. Note: only specific matches for the court room and/or time/day/date of the listing are provided, so there will be some records where no Matter Type is shown.
For a limited time, one month of access to the ACCR database is now only $27.50 (usually $49.50).
That's a $22.00 saving and only an extra $11.00 above the 24 hour fee.
